  • "I named my son Grayson in 2001. I hadn't heard it before. Gray Davis was being recalled as the Governor of CA. and I said to my husband, "How about Gray?" He said that's a dull color in a box of crayons." My husband then said, "What about Mason?" I'll always think of jars... so jokingly I said what about Grayson. I didn't even know it was a name. We liked it and it means "son of grey haired man"... Hubby had streaks of gray and the rest is history. It's a good name unique without being too odd. I am a Norwegian American so I was toying with really ethnic names like Tragen, Torvald and Gunner and Ove.. My son was not amused when I told him years later. Its so fun to play with names when pregnant. Alot more fun then my menopause lol" Mar. 4, 2019: Report as inappropriate
