MY son is named Fraser (2007) - his father & paternal grandfather both have Fraser as a middle name. The name migrated from the maiden name of one of his great great grandmothers.
My Name is Fraser, occasionally people think it is unique or comment on not having heard it before (I'm Canadian) I have met only one other Fraser socially or through work directly (though people tell me of others)
The name has caused no drama at all except that I tend to have to repeat it because of the soft second syllable.
Basically its not hard to spell or say and its not super common or exotic so it raises no eyebrows.
