    @lezlers: Hilarious.  I was thinking it but didn’t type it.  That’s why you rock.

    Grafton is a town in my state that is known for being kind of sketchy, no offense but you ask.

    I already said I like Grafton but here are a few cool names/spellings for boys if you decide to choose something else:

    Garrick is a cool Old English name

    Gedeon/Gideon: meaning the mighty warrior in Hebrew or warrior/devastator in Hungarian.

    Gryffyn is the Comish/Welsh spelling for Griffon/Griffin though I like Gryffin better

    Like I said, I named my son Ryddik and am planning on calling my future girl Elektra so I like unique names. lol

    Another older G option – Garland.

    I also really like Gray.

    I have a friend named Grayson. I really like that for a boy’s “G” name.

    I like Grafton! Isn’t funny how names go in and out of favour depending on location? I’ve noticed a lot of American bees love the name Graham but for me, here in Australia it’s the kind of name that 50 year old men, with bad glasses, beer bellies and knitted jumpers have. LOL

    I also love Grayson, and it hasn’t really hit our shores yet, so if I end up having a baby in the next few years I might have to try and convince the fella to go for it! 🙂

    What about Grady?

    My nephew’s name is Brady and that’s why I thought it.

    I don’t mind Grafton. It immediately made me think of Sue Grafton the author, not skin grafts or any of the other things mentioned.

    It’s ok, I like Griffin better. If you named him Grafton then he would get names like “Graft, Graft, Grafto”

    Whereas Griffin would be Griff, Griffy etc, which I think sounds better.

    In the end though, it’s (Grafton) not a name which is easy to make fun of and is uncommon and not cringeworthy. So I do like it. 🙂

    @stephanie63087: I like all stephanie’s suggestions! Especially Gavin, Garrett, and  Grayson! When I first saw Grafton, I thought of Gryphon.

    It took me a few minutes to warm up to it but I like it.  

    @Everdeen:  I immediately thought of “Graf” for a nickname.  I don’t think it’s bad.  I like Griffin too.

    I don’t think it’s *bad* per se, but unless Grafton is a family name or something, it sounds to me like the parents are trying too hard.

    Funny, I also thought of Grafton, WI lol its a nice, small, town. Very pretty. Also reminds me of a lady I knew who last name was Graff. So I have lots of nice thoughts about that name! Do you have a middle name to go with it? Im curious what his entire name would be to give it some context. Besides, his personality will make the name interesting anyway! 🙂
