I named my second son Grant. Only knew one person with that name, but now it’s getting to be a popular name. I love that name.

We named our son Grant in 1999, at that time it wasn’t so popular. I had read that it meant strong, courageous, trustworthy and compassionate. It’s a name that is free from any racial or ethnic identifiers and allowed our wonderful blessing to have his own life, free from judgement based on his name. Now at 19 years old, he would be assessed on his character: which is strong, intelligent, courageous, independent, compassionate and honest.

Grant is a name that gives me the vibe of a mature, chill guy. It's a pretty cool name.

Fine with a British accent, but it sounds pretty terrible to me in a U.S. accent, especially a Midwestern accent with the flat, nasal vowels. It's very abrupt and braying to my ear.

I love the name Grant! Strong, handsome and with American pride and religious connotation. The reason I may choose Grant for my future son is because God has granted (allowed, given) me a son! Perfect!

I don't really care for this as a first name, it's rather short and dull.

Great name. Not too popular, but not unheard of. Not childish, but not dated. It's a very strong name that will suit all ages well. Plus, there's really no way for anyone to get "kre8tiv" and butcher the spelling!

My brother's name is Grant! :)
It's not bad. But I hate it when people say "Gran-t", it's pronounced "Grah-nt".

One of my closest friends is called this. My impression of this name is somebody who is strong, assertive, but still loves to have fun... at least that's what he is anyways. All in all, a great name.

The only Grant I know is six feet five inches tall, so he really suits the meaning of "large"! Not terrible but I don't think I'd use it.
