    Name Meaning

    Scottish (Lanarkshire): from the medieval Scottish personal name Grier, a vernacular form of Gregor (see Gregory and compare Grierson ). This form of the surname is common in Ireland as well as Scotland.

    History: A Scottish family by the name of Grierson claim descent from Gilbert, a son of Malcolm MacGregor (died 1374), 11th Lord of MacGregor. Gilbert was known as both MacGregor and Gregorson. In 1400 he was granted lands by the Earl of March in the name Grierson. The numerous northern Irish bearers of the name Greer claim descent from this same Gilbert.
