    haha, I agree! Another American, and I was curious which two were considered more American because the only one I found very American was Greyson/Grayson--I found Miller and Rowan more British than anything (although I'm probably perceiving things wrong!). I adore Gray/Grey as a nn, so Greyson would get my vote (if I get to vote!), but Rowan is my second choice. They're all lovely, though.

    Go with Rowan. I don't like the surname-come-first-name trend at all. Like Otter said, it's pretty chavvy.

    Totally agree with Ren and Otter. Another vote for Rowan here

    American and I vote Grey! Rowan is ok but doesn't seem as straightforward. Miller is a beer here, but I suppose if you pick this you could have a middle name Grey?
