Gender: M Meaning of Granger: "worker of the granary" Origin of Granger: English occupational name

If you're seeking a solid last-name-first occupational name with a warm, friendly sound, one that's not overused, this could be it.

Granger is much better known as a surname--think handsome mid-century actors Stewart and Farley, and, more recently and majorly, Hermione Jean Granger, one of the three main protagonists of the Harry Potter series--but would make an unusual but accessible first.
