    LOL! You must be thinking of indie music artist Sufjan Stevens. His name is pronounced Soof-yawn. That's a creative source for Saff, to be sure.

    Sanford? Kind of a stretch, I guess.
    Names I enjoy:

    Girls: Lucy, Elena, Lake, Sylvie

    Boys: Jack, Eamon, Sylvan, Theo

    I would NOT use Grace for a boy even in the middle. Even though it is technically, a neutral (non-gendered) noun, it IS a common girls' name. A boy with the middle name Grace will almost surely be embarrassed of the name. I recommend giving your son a full name he will feel good about.
    Mother of three teenagers: (1) Daniel Glen, (2) Timothy Austin, and (3) Rebecca Jane... all middle names honor family... 3rd generation mn Jane. (A second girl would have been Susanna Eve and a third boy, maybe Isaac...)

    Based on popular usage, it is 1.009 times more common for Saffron to be a boy's name.
    That really surprises me. Saffron in the UK is all girl, ranked #370 last year and peaked at #133 in 2000. It doesn't even rank for boys at all. Must be a regional difference.

    Joseph nn Seff/Saff is a brilliant suggestion.

    I would assume Saffron is a girls name. Archer Grace as a boys name has less potential for teasing in that he would mostly go by Archer, but Grace is such a girl's name that you'd have to explain it in that context of why you gave him such a middle name. I think it unlikely he would get through school without it coming out, or family saying something etc.
    Chelsea

    There is an author named Jonathan Saffron Foer (Everything is Illuminated), and its the only thing I can think of that shows it could work on a boy. I would still probably use it for the middle name though.
