    Middle name spelling - Using a nickname?

    Hi team!

    Expecting first baby in March, with no idea of the sex, and we've locked in the first name should it be a boy, and know that we want to use the shortened version of my husband's father's name Graeme (he passed away just a year ago), but are unsure of which spelling works best.

    His nickname was used by so many instead of the full Graeme, so we felt that even thought we're not using his formal name, this still honours him.

    So the options are:

    August Gray
    August Grey
    August Grae

    Thoughts would be appreciated!

    I like the spelling "Grey" The best, but honestly they all look fine!

    Did he ever spell out Gray/Grey/Grae? How did he spell it? I would go with that, personally. I generally prefer Gray (okay, almost invariably, I do), but here I actually sort of like August Grey. It seems so distinguished and British!

    I prefer Gray. Gray seems more like a name to me, Grey is how I would spell the color, and Grae just looks misspelled.

    I prefer Gray. August Gray is very handsome.
