Grayson is a name that has started to grow on me. I have seen it used for both boys and girls and it is starting to be used more often.

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.

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.

Ooooh it's sooper doooper kewt. It is frigging depressing as is the "feminine" Gracen.

I really like this, but only masculine and with the original spelling.

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

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

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".

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".

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.

I love this name, but the meaning bothers me for some reason.

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?

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

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

At least use the Greyson spelling.
― Anonymous User  9/7/2014
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.

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.

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

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.

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.

The name Grayson was unfortunately given to 168 girls born in the US in 2015.

Grayson Dolan, internet personality and twin brother of Ethan Dolan, has this name.

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

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

Grayson Spencer (male) is a character in the Silver: The Book Of Dreams Trilogy by Kerstin Gier.

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.

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.

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.
