I like simple boys names that are quite 'manly' and not too common or too pretentious. Any other ideas welcome. Really not keen on the Alfie, Archie, Oscar type names or anything very modern.

Thanks!

That's a lovely name. I had a massive crush on a very gorgeous Gregor at university, so might be a bit biased!

have you read Game of Thrones? Gregor is the name of the most brutal murderer in the series. seriously not a nice bloke.

might not be an issue for you and if so, fair enough but expect comments.

I like Gregor. It is a name on our list. Other names on our list are
Griff[in]
Travis
Scott
Tristan

Lovely.

I can only say/read/hear it with a Russian accent for some reason. It's a very strong name, lovely.

Cool name. I have not seen/ read Game of Thrones.

Travis v. popular with U3s round here.

I like Gregor a lot! Names I'd consider to be in a similar vein (serious, not too widespread or modern) would be Innes, Fraser, Malcolm.

Gregor turned into a gigantic insect in Kafka's short story "Metamorphosis". I like it!

I like it alot. The actor Gregor Fisher plays Rab C. Nesbit who I love but need DH to translate for me grin.

Gregor is on my list. good strong name, not too 'try hard' but not too popular.

I prefer Gregory but Gregor is also a good name.

It was down to Gregor or Craig for our first son. I really loved both, we picked Craig but I still hanker for Gregor occasionally.

In the same vein:

Moray/Murray
Ross
Nairn
Keir
Kerr
Torin
Cairn
Callum
Stewart
Logan

oh, and Alastair.

Makes me think of Gregor samsa!

I'd stick a Y on it. Love Gregory, whereas Gregor feels a bit evil genius for me.

I like Gregor. It's strong, unusual without being too out there, and sounds best with a Scottish accent <swoons>

Thanks guys- general consensus is good name with a murderous edge. Not ideal for my precious baby but I'm still quite keen...

Game of Thrones has ruined the name for me too. How about Sandor?

I like Gregor. Also Alistair.

Makes me think of the Game of Thrones character too!

Another one who thinks of Game of Thrones' Gregor Clegane.

Horrible character. Manly though!
