    Both grey and gray are qualified by almost the same meaning.

    • Grey is the British way of spelling the word for the colour between black and white.

    Gray is the same colour but the spelling way of that word in American English.

    Grey - British English.

    Gray - American English.

    Both forms occur as surnames in Britain, possibly also in the USA.

      Both are the English Language; unless, perhaps, defined by an English right wing nationalist looking to Make England Great Again.

    They are both acceptable spellings of the same word (happens a lot in English).

      I'm not saying you have to, I'm just saying there is an option (especially when no context is given). Even if you don't like it, surely you can accept that American English exists.
