Greer is an unusual gender-neutral name originating in Scotland but whose roots stretch back to the Byzantine Empire. As a distinctively modern take on Gregor, Greer is considered a variation of the late Greek name Grēgórios, meaning "alert" or "watchful" and "quick" or "swift." It's an ancient name that found pride of place within spiritual circles as denoting one who guides and shields—its Latin variation, Gregory, long popular among monks and popes. No doubt, Greer's reputation as a vigilant protector adds a coveted gravitas to the bearer. Whether blessed with lightning reflexes or laser focus, Greer is a title of heroic proportions.
