Names that feel like Brahm and Grey

I have liked the name [name_m]Brahm[/name_m] (like prom, not [name_m]Bram[/name_m] like graham) for a long time, and now have a sudden liking of the name [name_u]Grey[/name_u]. NOT [name_m]Greyson[/name_m]/[name_m]Graydon[/name_m]/etc, just [name_u]Grey[/name_u]. Hubby thinks [name_m]Brahm[/name_m] is “okay” and that [name_u]Grey[/name_u] is too rhymey with gay, which made him nix it.

I consider them names that feel masculine while being softer in the sound, and unique and understated in style.

What other boy names give you this feeling? I feel like I just see the same few names over and over.

Not sure if these quite fit but these are the first that came to mind seeing those names.

[name_m]Brahm[/name_m] and [name_u]Grey[/name_u] are perfect.

Also, unless [name_u]Grey[/name_u] turned out to BE gay, no one would associate “[name_u]Grey[/name_u]” with “gay”. [name_u]Grey[/name_u] is a color. Not a sexual orientation.

I agree. I also think kids will find a way to make fun of anything. I’m [name_f]Nicole[/name_f] and “nick hole” was common for an “insult.”

Soft, strong, monosyllabic?
