descendant of the footsoldier
Troy was the name of a legendary ancient city featured in “The Iliad,” Homer’s classic poem about the Trojan War. It became a favorite on the baby-name charts mostly because of a blonde-and-built movie star from the 1950s and 1960s named Troy Donahue (real name: Merle Johnson). Today it's a name with both a vintage sensibility and modern flavor.
