It makes me think of the mythical creature that's a cross between a lion and an eagle.

Shortened to Griff it makes me think of Griff Reesce (sp?) Jones, who always comes across as a throughly nice chap.

Surname. I was at school with a boy with it.

I'm not wild about surnames as names, but this is one that could work.

I think the mythical creature is spelt Gryphon? (Or Gryffon)

(I was in Gryphon House at school, and we had a blue dragon creature as our emblem!)
