  1. My fiance actually was the one to really like the name at first I liked it but it wasn’t my first choice I really liked the name River but as I started thinking about it and growing my baby really seemed to gravitate to the name Greyson he would move and wiggle in the womb anytime I said the name and I just knew from there that my son was going to be a Greyson. Not to mention the color of all his furniture and baby things I’ve bought have been grey and blue and hunter green. My fiance is so excited that I agreed with the name be choose so we are naming him Greyson Dean since my dad’s name is Dean.

  2. Grey is a family name and I’ve always been drawn to it in some form. Even the color.
    I wanted something unique, but not off the wall. Unfortunately, it seems like this might be a popular name for his generation.

  3. Me and my husband chose “Greyson” bc of the meaning. It means “Son of the grey haired one” and bc we just liked the way it sounded lol
    Greyson is a spunky 3 month old who laughs even when he’s tired, congested or teething. We truly are blessed with this little bundle of joy!

  4. My husband actually chose our sons name. He asked me one day about the name Greyson and I liked it! Greyson’s middle name is Lee after my husband’s late grandmother. We later found out both of my paternal great grandmothers had the same middle name!

  5. The name just stuck out to me and I fell in love.

  6. I chose the name Greyson because I’m married to Greg and I loved the name Grey. I chose the specific spelling because it was close to Greg.
