    I think it's fine, it's becoming more recogised as a name so I wouldn't worry about the association.

    I agree with southern.maple. I would be very worried if anyone thought you named your son after porn. I honestly don't think the books are going to be that big a deal. Everyone I know who read them thought they were "just okay" or written like a teenager wrote it and wouldn't read the other 2 books.

    I think Peregrine Gray sounds pretty cool ^_^

    I really like Grey but I liked it a lot more when it was less popular, or at least before I found out it was more popular than I thought it was.

    ha!

    I briefly questioned having Grayson nn Gray on my short list after 50 Shades came out, but as it honors my grandmother, I just couldn't drop it. It's a bit hard for me to shake the association (I really don't want the 50 Shades comments!), but it's such a great name. I think once it dies down even more it will be a non-issue. Peregrine Gray is handsome!

    Gray is fine. Now, I haven't read the books, but I can't see them staying popular for a long time. These types of books come and go, they're not classics and will soon be forgotten. When something more controversial shows up, using some other nice name...
