Hi there. I love the name Grayson for our expectant son. But our surname is Grafton.

Initially I thought no...but it's grown on me. Would we get away with it or is it just too much?

Lol lol just don't do that!

Sorry,but no,possibly it's a bit much teamed with your surname. What about Perry?that goes well with it.

What about Larry?

It's a bit of a mouthful but there's something about the combination that I quite like

BettyDraper1 Wed 03-Aug-16 22:18:42

Too much I think smile

Ooooohhh... Shut that door!

I like it. Clay is vaguely similar?

No I don't like Grayson with Grafton. It's a tongue twister.
Guy Grafton ?

Errrrm yes. Way too much. Please don't do that to your child.

Too much.

My neighbours have a cat called Grayson.

Grey Grafton is nice

Greyson Grafton is a bit of a mouthful but not awful.

I like it! It's not quite alliteration,, which I love, but it's very pleasing nevertheless.

Ha ha

It sounds like the start of a tongue twister

Grayson Grafton grabbed a gaggle of grizzly geese...'

KoalaDownUnder Thu 04-Aug-16 16:42:39

It's awful. Grayson and Grafton are 2 letters out of 7 away from being the same word. confused

LifeIsGoodish Thu 04-Aug-16 16:43:20

It sounds...fake. A made-up celebrity name. It's not just the alliteration, but the paired syllables as well. Greer Grafton is marginally better.

I think it's fine, but that's probably because I love Grayson Perry.

If I was having a boy, I'd call him that. Even if my surname was Grayson. (Well, it worked for Jerome K Jerome and Ford Maddox Ford!)

What about Clayton?

RockinHippy Thu 04-Aug-16 16:59:25

I quite like it, but softening it with a middle name might make it more acceptable to the masses. Perhaps something more classic in the middle, such as Grayson James Grafton, or Grayson Henry Grafton

MargotLovedTom Thu 04-Aug-16 17:25:16

Horatio it is alliteration surely? confused

I wouldn't go with Grayson Grafton. What about Lawrence/Laurence - Lawrie/Laurie Grafton has a nice ring to it?

dogparkingbus4x4wanker Thu 04-Aug-16 17:27:20

Grayson sounds like a dogs name.

Vixxfacee Thu 04-Aug-16 17:28:36

Gray grafton?
