Most kids would be happy to be a prince, but if that's not enough for your son then this name is sure to succeed instead. Elroy, a French boy's name, means "the king" and could be a variant of the name Leroy. It comes from the French phrase le roi, but the spelling might have been influenced by Spanish's el. This regal name was most popular in the 1920s, so it's perfect if you're searching for a name with a vintage twist.
