The Honourable Reginald James Macartney Greville-Nugent (27 November 1848 – 28 February 1878) was an Irish politician, the younger son of Fulke Greville-Nugent, 1st Baron Greville.

He held the Irish parliamentary seat of Longford, vacated by his father on his elevation to the peerage, from 31 December 1869, defeating John Martin. He had to relinquish the seat in May 1870 due to Judge Fitzgerald overturning the election result on the grounds of voting irregularities.

He married Louisa Maud Yarde-Buller on 21 October 1871. He was killed in 1878 after a fall in a steeplechase at Sandown Park.

His illegitimate son, Reginald Charles Fulke Greville, born 19 August 1866, was better known after changing his surname to Maugham (following a close friendship with the writer W. Somerset Maugham's great-aunt Julia) as the author of numerous books about Africa, and his most well-known work, 'Jersey under the Jack Boot' ('Somerset and all the Maughams', Robin Maugham, 1966)
