We are ttc but have been tossing names around for a while now smile

I love the name Greyson, Dh loves the name Grey which i am more than happy to use as a nick name but would prefer our child to have a longer name DH not a fan of Greyson, are there any other alternatives out there?

I also like:

Cole - My all time most favourite name, Dh hates this
Jonah - we both like this
Caleb - not sold on it
Ralph - i love dh is meh

any suggestions?

I like Wolf, and Bear, neither dh would agree to. Not that you mentioned Bear grin

I like Ralph for several reasons its a family name and also a really cool muppet grin

I suppose i do like Grey just as a name to smile

The only Greyson I know sometimes gets called Grace for short at school by other children. I don't think I'd like my boy being called Grace. But then I also have a Graham (who is a tiny entertaining lunatic, and gets called Grey most of the time) so maybe I'm too boring to know what I'm talking about. wink

My surname was Gray before I got married. It's very 'meh' to me (I was happy to lose it smile). Really dislike Greyson. To me it is ether American surname as first name trend (top 100 name btw) or just a surname - anyone remember Greyson and Cholmondley Warner.

Jonah or Ralph.
Sorry, just can't imagine calling a child a colour that is pretty much always used negatively, eg of weather or unhealthy-looking people, depressing outlook on life.

I seem to remember a character in Inspector Morse who was called Grayling, young female pathologist I think. A Grayling is a fish ....

going back to Graham, there is the variant spelling Graeme which might look a bit cooler written down at least grin

Bit of a stretch but Lloyd?

Lloyd is derived from the Welsh llwyd which means Grey....
