Is this a girl name or boy name?

Someone suggested to us the baby name Grey/Gray. ?To my mind this is a name for a girl, not a boy (which we are having). ?Thoughts?

  • I know a boy and a girl named Grayson (nn. Gray).  That being said, I think it's a boy name.
  • Boy.  I also have a friend named Grayson that goes by Gray.

  • I know one girl with the nn Gray (for Gracyn) and several boys. I think of it as primarily a boy name.

    Grey/Gray can be short for Graham, Grayson/Greyson, Grainger, etc.

  • I immediately thought "boys name" too..
  • I thought "boy" at first glance.  I prefer it as a NN to some of the other names that PPs mentioned, but not as a stand alone name.  GL!

    Boy, the only Gray I know is a boy. ?I love the name.
  • It is a colour.

    But, if it had to be used for a baby's name, I would say it is 100% boy.

  • Definitely boy.  Wish it worked with our LN, I love it.

  • I know a girl named Gray but I have also heard it being a boys name...

    For me, I think girls - but that's just cause the only person I know with that name it.  Could probably be unisex?

  • I know a man named Grey...so I think male.
  • I think it sounds like a boy name.  I have heard it as a nickname for Grayson.

  • Either and I think it's cute.
  • To me Grey/Gray is a total boy name.  I have never seen or heard of a little girl with this name.

  • I was going to say boy.  If our baby is a boy, that is going to be his name.  I have heard it go both ways though.
  • I'd say a boy
  • I worked with a woman named Gray.
  • I would think boy (grayson as a full name)
  • Well, it's a color not a name. but if I was going with name, i'd say boy. 
  • It's a boy's name to me - I only know males who go by Gray (although its always been as a nn).  Our DS's middle name is going to be Graydon.  Obviously I like the name.

  • It's def boy, but I prefer Grayer.

    Bro, but look how many ants are on this trash can...

  • My first thought was a boy actually. I know two Graysons that are boys. I think it's a nice name.
