What do you think of the name Grafton for a baby boy? We want something uncommon but not weird, and we like names that start with G. We thought of Grafton over the weekend but want some outside opinions.

sorry, but it instantly makes me think of a skin graft

It’s different but unique. And it makes me think of a scholar or a literary writer.

@kitzy: That’s exactly what I thought of.
Maybe Griffin? That has a similar feel and I think is still fairly unusual.

Yeah… makes me think of:
Skin graft, graph paper, someone who weighs a ‘ton’.

A cute boys name that I have mentioned on another post: Gatlin… Like “Cat” with a “G” and then “Lin” but if you love Grafton, go with it.

I like it! It actually sounds like an older name, like from the 1900s or something. It didn’t come up in the top 1000 on Baby Name Voyager, so it’s definitely unique. Watch, you’ll name your baby Grafton and 10 years later it will be insanely popular. 🙂
