This is a nice name, although I can only picture it on adults for some reason. It doesn't really sound right on a child.

I like this name but it reminds me of some hair and other gunk you would pull out of the drain with a toothpick.

I really like this name and the nickname Greg is so manly and strong sounding but in the UK it's dropped off in popularity in recent years, probably because of the Greg's Bakery shop which is very popular here. They sell mainly cakes and savoury pastries and going to Greg's is a by word for "I'm going to pig out on cakes" or if someone is overweight they are said to have been living at Greg's, lol. I fear this may have tainted the name:(, which is sad. I hope people start using the name more again here in England. It's such a strong and interesting name.

I've always loved this name. It sounds so handsome and strong and intellectual and charming. It's timeless. I can imagine a Gregory from a Medieval fantasy and in a modern-day school. I would marry a Gregory.

Gregory is my name and I am quite content with it. I often get called "Greg" or even mistakenly "Craig", but it's not that bothersome.

In early 17th century England Gregory Brandon was the state's public executioner, and his son Richard took over the role. Richard was often known as "little Gregory" since he'd inherited the post from his father. Most of the "victims" of their judicial killings were common criminals who perished by hanging, but in the case of noblemen the Brandons had to wield the axe, as beheading was deemed the appropriate punishment for high class miscreants convicted of crimes meriting the death penalty. In 1640 Richard (aka "little Gregory") beheaded Thomas Wentworth, Earl of Strafford, who had fallen foul of King Charles the First. In 1649 Charles himself was beheaded - it was rumoured by "little Gregory", who had earlier refused to kill a king, and was said to have been bribed to change his mind.
Because of these two state public hangmen called Gregory, the gallows became known in popular parlance as "the Gregory tree" and it's believed that this macabre association hastened the decline in the number of infant boys christened Gregory in England.

I think Gregory is an ok name. It feels very old though - can't imagine it on a young person. I also really dislike Greg which is probably an inevitable nickname.

I've never liked this name. It sounds very old-fashioned and elitist, like the name rich and emotionally cold parents would choose for the son they'll be sending off to a boarding school. I don't like the rather harsh-sounding nickname Greg either. Besides, the religious associations put me off.

I really don't like this name. It reminds me of preps and/or people who fix cars for a living for some reason. No offense intended, just how I feel.

There is also a character in Julia Quinn's book On the Way to the Wedding, and all the other Bridgerton books come to think of it, called Gregory. I love the name as a whole but I don't like Greg, it's just too strange.

It's my dad's name. I like it well enough. I'd probably give my son the middle name of "Gregory," but definitely not the first.

My second son is a Gregory. But he was a tiny baby and so, rather than call him "Greg" as a shortend form, we decided to use the ending sounds of the name and now call him "Rory". It truly suits him!

When I was little, I detested this name, but I think that's because I thought my little brother, Gregory, was going to be a little sister named Catherine. The great disappointment. As I grew up, I appreciated the name more and how it suited him.

Consequently, in the year 303 AD, the Armenian people became the first nation to adopt Christianity as official religion of their state, even before Christianity was officially adopted by Emperor Constantine of the Byzantine Roman Empire.
