Hi Guys,

Me & my partner are struggling to find a name we both agree on.
He really likes Enzo, I'm really not that keen on it,

My favourite is Grayson with the middle name Rafferty.

I really have no other names I'm blown away by at the min.

What's the feeling out there about Grayson ?

Grayson Rafferty is darling! Enzo is lovely if a little dog like.

Grayson sounds like a camp old man! Much prefer Enzo.

My first thought would be Grayson Perry but I think he's pretty fab so that's OK. Haven't heard of any others. I like Rafferty.

Think it's a girls name in America.

My DD is 6 months and we know of 3 Graysons this age. It is getting quite popular. I think it is cute.

Grayson Perry (cross-dressing media luvvie)

Larry Grayson ('Shut that Door!')

Those would be my thoughts.

The only Grayson I have come across in the US is Grayson Crisley from 'Crisley Knows Best'.

Grayson is the bully in Bad Education.

But he softens up in the end. Falls in love with Stephen and totally mellows.

I LOVE Grayson.

MrsEricBana Tue 17-May-16 16:54:14

Well Grayson Perry (super cool), Larry Grayson (less so). Is Grayson the new Harrison?
(Can I raise you Pablo?)

I don't particularly lime either Grayson or Enzo, but think Rafferty is lovely.

MissDallas Tue 17-May-16 16:56:32

I know four Grayson's! The first time I heard it I thought it was a really odd name and yes, a bit camp (Larry Grayson). It has grown on me, though.

MissDallas Tue 17-May-16 16:57:50

ErrinPerrin, all the Grayson's I know are boys. And in the US.

I really like Grayson. Cougar town fan. I suggested it for our DS but DH vetoed it not-- a cougar town fan-- grin

JazzAnnNonMouse Tue 17-May-16 17:04:33

I think it sounds American as it's surnamey like Carson
I like it though
Love it with the middle name

Enzo is a bit um urgh to me lol

Tiggeryoubastard Tue 17-May-16 17:05:25

Grayson Rafferty? Dear God, that's more heinous than double denim. Both truly awful. And yes to pp, camp old man.
Not my style but Enzo is great - the one I knew was a lovely man.

Larry Grayson

Rafferty is a bit frilly for my taste but it seems quite popular so many people must like it. I'd prefer Raphael personally.

Not keen on Grayson, but generally not a fan of surnamey first names.

I like Enzo, also Ezra and Ezekiel (Zeke). Or Gabriel (a bit like Grayson and Raphael?)

It's very, very camp. This may not bother you.

"Ooh, what a gay day!"

Larry grayson v Enzo ferrari?

Enzo any time!

I like it spelt Greyson... Grayson is the American spelling (to me)... I like it loads more than Enzo!
