  1. We loved Graham because it was different and somewhat unique without being too crazy!

  2. Graham is my maiden name. It’s also a strong, confident name. And not super popular. But the main reason I chose it is because it’s my maiden name.

  3. My mother introduced us to this name. It is a strong one syllable name, that fits our sweet boy perfectly!

  4. Thought it was cute for all ages–baby to adult. Possible nickname that some may not like is Graham Cracker.

  5. Classic name good for both young child and adult.

  6. When we picked Graham for our first back in 2014 we followed the rule of making sure it wasn’t a name in the Top 100 most popular names in the previous year, though that didn’t stop us once from going to a swimming class of about 10 other kids and there were 3 Graham’s – how is that possible?

    We struggled to find the correct name, but one of us works in live music, and while staring up at the wall at some posters from San Francisco’s venue The Fillmore, we saw the word “Bill Graham Presents” at the bottom of every poster. While we didn’t like Bill, Graham sounded nice, and Bill Graham is the most famous concert promoter of all time.
