Gray is a masculine name of British origin. Its British roots suggest it described someone gray-haired, a nickname possibly brought over from France during the Norman Conquest, but also nestled in Old English. Gray’s Scottish usage hints toward its Gaelic origins, where it derived from the word riabhach, meaning “brindled gray.” Gray offers a chic, shortened alternative to its sibling Grayson and lets baby stand out with a hint of flash.
