This was also the name of the famous murderer Grace Marks who killed her employer in 1852 along with his mistress. I'm not a particular fan of this name but I think that the name reminds me of the murderer and that's why.

I never liked this name until I heard of Grace Kelly, the American actress who married Prince Ranier of Monaco on April 19, 1956. She was such a beautiful and amazing woman - a TRUE princess! I think that a nice name for my daughter would be Grace Kelly _______ (last name).

St. Grace was the wife of St. Probus. There is a church named for them in Cornwall, England. Not much is known about them, but legends say that Grace gave the money for Probus to build the church tower. It is also uncertain when they lived, but it was sometime in the early Middle Ages.

I'm slightly surprised that no one mentioned the children's story Amazing Grace by Mary Hoffman. It was one of my favorites as a kid. It's about an African American girl who desperately wants to play Peter Pan in the school play but the other kids laugh at her for even thinking it because she's both black and a girl. It's a cute story with a positive message.

Dr. Grace Holloway was a companion of the Eighth Doctor. She has the rather dubious distinction of being the only companion to kill the Doctor directly (she was trying to operate on one of his hearts, and it didn't work out), and the less dubious distinction (for some fans) of being the first companion to snog the Doctor.

My name is Grace and I love my name. I was named after my granny whose surname was Grace. Nobody had it when I was a child but a lot of babies are now called Grace. Only thing I don't like is that I married a Kelly so now the actress is a constant mention in my life.
