It’s unbelievable that this is one of the most common names in America. I mean, it’s so unattractive!

I never heard someone use Grayson as a girl name but now hearing it, I think it's a good name for a girl.

Unlike Madison, I’m so used to Grayson as a boy’s name. Reminds me of that young boy with that name who got bullied just for liking My Little Pony. I don’t mind it for a girl, but I prefer it for a boy.

My name is Grayson and I think it's a great name. I'm a girl and I don't care y'all think it's a boy name, but you could at least not be so negative.

Every name that ends with 'son' actually means 'the son of...'. Sorry girls.

I'm sorry for girls with first names ending with "son". There is a reason why Grayson is intended to be a boy's name. Enough said.

My name is Grayson and I am a girl. Do you know how many times I've introduced myself as Grayson online and had people ask if I'm a boy? I'm over it. Look, if anything my name is making a statement. As I came out of my mother's womb, I broke barriers. My name is GRAYSON and no I am not masculine. And even if I was, why would anyone care? My name has no correlation to who I am on the inside. Yes, I don't mind being called "Grace" or "Gracie" because those names are nice and I like those nicknames.

I'm a female and my middle name is Grayson. I'm kinda indifferent to it. It's a long dead surname in my family, so I guess I'm a bit attached to it.

The whole thing with people being mad that you can take out the r and make it "Gay son" makes me laugh. Chill out, people. It's 2017. Nobody gives a rat's tail about that anymore. Grow up. It's a great name for many reasons, including why I have it. Don't hate something just because you can rearrange the letters to something you don't like. You can turn almost any word into another. Just chill out.

And then people being angry girls have the name. Seriously? It's just a name. And again, you don't always know the story behind the reason the person has their name. For example, I know a girl named Grayson who was named after the person who saved her pregnant mother from a burning building. Back off and let people name their kids what they want.

Grayson is an amazing and strong boy's name. For a girl, I prefer the spelling Graycen (it doesn't have 'son' in it, and Grace is a possible nickname). I think Graycen for a girl is a great alternative to the common boring name Grace.

My DAUGHTER is Grayson. I loved the name the first time I heard it. No need to be so negative and mean.

Wait, parents are actually naming their daughters Grayson?! Grayson is a boy's name and doesn't sound feminine AT ALL!

A trendy surname plucked out of the phone book. It really is an annoying trend, and I can't see why this one in particular is racing up the top 100. It doesn't even sound good in my opinion.

That being said, if you're going to use this name, please use it on a boy. It's bad on a boy but hideous on a girl; look at the obviously masculine meaning.

This name is a bit of a guilty pleasure to me, mainly because I associate it with Dick Grayson, aka the superhero Robin. However, I also admit that I find it to be rather childish and too much of an obvious trendy name. On a girl it just looks like you're trying too hard to give her an original name, and failed miserably due to the obvious masculinity of the sound and meaning. I prefer the much simpler color name Gray, which actually CAN be used on any gender.

Famous bearers include the fictional character Richard "Dick" Grayson, the alter-ego of the superheros Robin/Nightwing from DC Comics Batman series.

I disagree completely that the -son ending alone makes this name strictly masculine. Think about Allison or Madison. I think it sounds nice for both genders.

Way too trendy and you take the R out and you are left with 'Gay son'

At least use the Greyson spelling.

I agree with the anonymous user above me. Grayson does bring to mind, Gay son. If you must use this name, for the sake of your son regardless of him being gay or straight, use the Greyson spelling. He will later thank you. I personally think there are far better names out there anyway.

My aunt named her daughter this. I'm going to guess that it won't always be seen as a purely masculine name.

Yuck. This name is too modern and tryndee for my tastes. It sounds tacky and unpleasant. I don't understand why it's so popular all of a sudden. Why not just still to good old Jason?

I suppose it's an okay name for males. Not terrific, but not horrible. On a girl, however, the name is hideous and tacky. How can it be a feminine name when it has a very obvious masculine meaning: "SON of the steward"? Unless your daughter is also your son, I suggest you back away. If you really like the sound of this, go with Grace.

The only 2 Grayson's I've met were a boy, and a girl. I don't really care for it, it sounds like "greasin".

As a surname, Richard "Dick" Grayson. Dick is best known as the first Robin, sidekick to Batman and founding member of the Teen Titans, but he has since grown up and now goes by "Nightwing".

Grayson is such a cute origanal name but as you get older, it seems babyish and playful. My brother is named Grayson.

Really handsome name. I usually don't like names that end in -son because of the gender confusion, but I really like this one.

I have a (female) cousin named this but she spells it Graycen. I thinks it's pretty and more feminine that way. It works for both genders.

I think it is a very youthful name and when you are young it is a very popular name to most people but when you get older you might wish you did not have that name because it is so youthful.
