Meaning:watchful, vigilant
From the Greek Gregōrios emerges Gregory, a boy's name tasked as being "vigilant" and "watchful." A favored title for over 1,500 years, Gregory has so long intertwined with Christianity that it has enveloped the Latin grex, meaning "flock," into its meaning. And so, Gregory represents one who is protective yet soothing, a mindful leader guiding their peers through any strife.
