    I really dislike that spelling. Gracen or even Gracyn with an annoying trendy Y are better.

    I agree it would work with a more feminine spelling. What about Graceyn - combo of Grace and Lynn?

    I had the same reaction. I'd just go with Grayson, Graysen, or Gracen. Actually I'd much prefer just Grey.

    Really?! I know one little boy with the name Grayson so to me it's not super popular. Interesting. He is the child of my mom's good friend and he lives far away from me. I just think that the "Grace" sounding part is pretty feminine sounding.

    Yeah, I've personally met 2 (both under 1) and have heard of at least 5 if not more (various websites/blogs - all babies). It all started thanks to the 50 Shades of Gray fandom. Not to mention the many people who use it in the middle spot...

    Grayson is number 85 on the SSA Popular Baby names of 2012 list and is bound to go up this year.
    Greyson is number 175

    Also for pn what I know it's pn Gray-son (http://inogolo.com/pronunciation/Grayson), not Grace-on. Hence why it sounds more boyish. If you like the sound Grace? Why not just Grace?

    I guess if you had to use the name, Gracen would be best to get the pn you want, to me Graison = Gry (rhymes with dry)-son
