Krikor Lusavorich (Gregory the Enlightner) was the saint who converted the Armenian people to Christianity in the late third century. 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.

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.

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.
