I think Gregory has class, and Greg, is fine on its own. But we all hate it when someone uses *Greggy* or *Gregger*
Older men always try and make you sound important by using *Gregorio*, which inadvertently makes you feel like you need bolstering, because just being Greg isnt manly enough." May. 2, 2006:
