Such a cute name.

Personal experiences with the name Toby: | Edit

I've known both a girl and a dog named Toby (or Tobey)!

Toby is my dads name and I think it fits him very well. He is big, burley, hardworking, and people are very intimidated by him, but he is the happiest and kindest man. Toby is also my little brothers name and it fits him very well too. He is very outapoken, but can be very shy and delicate. It shows that the name can be used for a child and carried on through adulthood.
