Greek in origin, Greg is a boy's name largely attributed to a guiding, protective force. Stemming from the Greek name Grēgórios and later the Latin Gregorius, Greg means "watchful" or "vigilant." Most fittingly, the name finds close proximity to the Latin noun grex, and its stem greg, meaning "flock." Such ties grant Greg the stature of a shepherd, faithfully watching over their flock with a calm and comforting hand. As the newest member of your cherished family, little Greg is sure to hold a special place as a loving guide and attentive figure.
