Comments for GRAY:

The word "gray" derives from the ancient Greek word "graios", "graia", meaning "old". In Greek mythology the Graiai were the three sisters Deino, Enyo and Pamphredo.

I know a girl named Gray. I usually loathe masculine names being used on girls, but somehow this is the only exception: it suits her perfectly.

I like this name, but never for a girl! It's very masculine and grown up to me.

I love this name for a girl! I feel like such a weirdo saying that but I think Gray is such a different and cool name. It's very intelligent, beautiful, and calming.

Gray is the American spelling of grey.

I really like this name. A lot of people I know think it is simple or dull, but I think it can convey a lot. I do feel that this name is better suited for a boy though. In my opinion, "Gray" seems like a thoughtful and masculine name.

Gray is sometimes used as a nickname for Graham.

I'm not against using color names as names for people. I like the name Cyan very much, and cyan is a color. It's just that this really seems more like a nickname. It's not very mature or serious. I'd pick Grayson over this and call the boy Gray.

I think Gray sounds extremely mature. When I think of a man named I Gray I think of someone incredibly serious minded.

Weird, I always thought this was a girl's name, short for Grace or Grayce or however it is you want to spell it.

Hello all of you. My name's Gray. It was my grandmother's middle name (she came from Scotland). Her brothers also had the name Gray as a middle name. Originally, it seems, Gray was the name of a village in Normandy, and our very distant ancestor came to England with William the Conqueror in 1066. How the family managed to acquire lands in Scotland I don't know.

My name is Gray- short for my middle name, Grace. I love my name. It's unusual, but not too unusual. I've never met another girl named Gray.

I've met a few Grays and they have all been male. I like this name. It's simple and would be especially nice for someone with gray eyes, although I suppose it's impossible to tell if your child is going to have gray eyes.

Please. Don't name your kid after a color!

In the British TV series Torchwood, Jack Harkness has a brother named Gray.

It looks like someone misspelled Gary. It's OK said out loud though, the spelling is just... weird.

I adore this name... but for a girl! I think it could work for both genders, but I just like it more for a girl :)
