I struggled so much to pronounce this over the years... but after living in Wales for 5 years and marrying a Welshman, I've definitely grown to love it.

Sara Griff Says:


It's not pronounced Grant, it's pronounced Ger-Rye-NT (we also roll the R) my dad's name is Geraint and it's an old Welsh name meaning 'Old'.

PeachyOwl Says:


I completely disagree, it's a legitimate Welsh name and although Welsh spellings can be unusual, they don't look like misspellings to me.

Interesting, but honestly, it kind of is spelled the way a Kindergartener might be sounding out the name "Grant"
