Gender: M Meaning of Gregory: "vigilant, a watchman" Origin of Gregory: Greek Gregory's Popularity in 2013: #299

This Greek name of sixteen popes and fifteen saints, the gregarious Gregory became big in this country with the emergence of admirable actor Gregory Peck (born Eldred) in the late 1940s. In the 1950s and sixties, it was in the Top 30 for around twenty-five years, with nickname Greg becoming a Cool Dude name. Gregory has slipped sharply over the last decade, but is still now at Number 299. So while Gregory may have morphed into an Upstanding Dad Name, it carries the winning combination of deep roots and a modern feel and still deserves consideration.

In addition to Gregory Peck, there have been dancer-actor Gregory Hines, racer Greg Lemond, golfer Greg Norman and musician Gregg Allman. Gregory Goyle is a Harry Potter wizard.
