Leroy (/ləˈrɔɪ/ lə-ROY), also Leeroy, LeeRoy, Lee Roy, LeRoy, (American spellings) or Le Roy, is both a male given name in English-speaking countries and a family name, chiefly in French-speaking countries. Leroy [lørwa] is one of the most common surnames in northern France.[1] As a surname it is sometimes Le Roy, as a translation of Breton Ar Roue. It is an archaic spelling of le roi, meaning "the king" and is the equivalent of the English surname King.
