Grey vs. Gray

Which spelling is best? I am thinking of this for a middle name.

GRAY is the actual correct way of spelling the word in the United States. GREY is the correct way of spelling it in Great Britain. So they’re both correct (Gray is a color. Grey is a colour).

[name]Both[/name] are correct, it depends on where you live. [name]Gray[/name] is for [name]America[/name], [name]Grey[/name] is for [name]England[/name].

I’m a Canadian, so [name]Grey[/name] looks better to me! I guess it’s really just personal preference, and what you’re used to seeing.

I personally prefer [name]Grey[/name], especially for a boy. For some reason it looks much more masculine to me, and it actually looks like a name. And [name]Gray[/name] just looks like a color to me…not really a name.

I think it depends on where you are, and how you look at it. As some said, [name]Grey[/name] is the British spelling and [name]Gray[/name] is the American; some Americans like [name]Gray[/name] better because it looks more familiar and “correct” since that’s how the color is spelled, but some Americans like [name]Grey[/name] better because it looks less like the color and more like an actual name. So it all depends on how you look at it, lol. I prefer [name]Gray[/name], personally (as you can see in my signature!)–[name]Grey[/name] just looks off to me. I’m sure I’d like [name]Grey[/name] better if I had grown up in [name]England[/name], though.

I think picking [name]Grey[/name] because it doesn’t look like the color is kind of silly because if that child goes to [name]England[/name], then it is the color. Does that mean British parents use the [name]Gray[/name] spelling?

I prefer [name]Grey[/name].

[name]Gray[/name] does make me think more of the color, even though I spell the color grey as well (and I’m in the US, for whatever that’s worth).

I think I prefer [name]Grey[/name]

I like [name]Grey[/name] because that is the correct spelling for me.
