- Personal experiences with the name Pryor
A really old family name, I had a great uncle named Pryor. I have never heard the name used anywhere else and I hope to use it one day. I think it's a very strong, masculine name with a classic feel to it but would be right at home on the playground amongst the Parkers and Ryders found in classrooms today.
