GRIGOR Family History

This personal name and very popular surname is one of many variant forms of the ancient Greek personal name "Gregorius", meaning the watchful one. In Christian mythology it is associated with the Latin form "grex" meaning flock, and by folk transference, The Good Shepherd. The name was first borne in the 4th Century by St. Gregory of Nazianzene circa 325 - 390, and by St. Gregory of Nyssa circa 311-390. In the many centuries which have followed it has been the name chosen by no less that sixteen popes - hence the spread of the name throughout christendom.
