And I just thought this was a common typographical error people made when spelling my surname (which happens to be German with an unflattering meaning I doubt anyone would stick on a kid). I had no idea it was an actual name. Learn something new everyday.

Nameberry has Grier and Greer only listed as girls names, but to me they're very unisex.

This name reminds me of the words "gross" and "eerie". Not a pretty sound.
