I like this as a virtue name for faith or belief, with undertones of trustworthy, as in credence. It's a streamlined name with a Western feel, like Clay or Colt, but also evokes the softer Reed.

I associate this with the Creed at church. I don't think "greed" or "creep" at all...

I think I would really like this name if it didn't sounds so close to 'greed' :(
