Late Greek in origin, Gregory means 'watchful, alert'. Owing to a whole string of respectable saints with this noble name, Gregory has picked up quite the noble allure. The name was thus hugely popular in England from the 12th century on, as an admirable, becoming and decorous name for a little boy. A good example of classic and smart!
