Hole size for kitchen faucet in granite

I am about to have granite installed in my kitchen and was wondering about the hole that must be drilled out. Is there a 'standard' size? I wonder because obviously I'm pretty much stuck with whatever is drilled out, so is there a usual size that will accommodate most all single stem faucets?

I have provided a link to the installation instructions for the faucet I have on order which indicates a 1 1/4" hole

Here is a link that might be useful: Hansgrohe Allegro E

1 1/4" is pretty much standard. Just installed 3 fixtures, all Kohler, all 1 1/4" except bath faucet which was a "reamed"
1 1/2"

Visit your local hdw. store and measure the 1-3/8" preformed holes in the castings.
