i had 2 cousins called (but not named Trey). They were both the thirds with awful first and middle names. Arvis Olen C III and Claude Eugene G. III. One was born in early 60's, the other in early 70's. The first one, Arvis, I called Ardie when he was a baby. When he got married and had a son named Arvis Olen IV, he called him Trace after his own nickname of Trey.
I have a friend named Trey (his nickname is Casanova). His siblings are Leila and Malachi. I think that they all have really cool, unique names and they all fit well with their surname.
