gray/grey: [FINAL DAYS OF DEAL—SEE BELOW] Common Errors in English Usage Entry for Thursday, December 13, 2012

“Gray” is the American spelling, “grey” the British spelling of this color/colour. When it’s part of a British name—like Tarzan’s title, “Lord Greystoke”—or part of a place name—like “Greyfriars”—it should retain its original spelling even if an American is doing the writing.
