I love this name. It sounds so sweet and delicate and feminine. I like it a lot better than the parent form "Grace" which has always sounded so stern and matronly to me for some reason. I have three girls named Gracie, Savannah and Charlotte! I love names that sound feminine, classic and timeless, I guess!

Yay! This is my name! I love it, even though sometimes it gets sort of boring. But it's still awesome!

This is my name and I love it! I hate it when people call me Grace for short though.

Country singers Faith Hill and Tim McGraw's eldest daughter is named Gracie Katherine.

This was also the nickname of the youngest daughter on the 1990s sitcom "The Nanny".

Yay! This is my name. My name is actually Mary Grace, but my nickname has been Gracie since I can remember. Overall, I think it's a great name up until about college. Then it gets a little young. I'm glad I have Mary Grace to fall back on when I'm an adult, but it's been a great childhood name.

Very cute as a nickname for Grace, but I don't like it as a full name on a birth certificate.

I hate this name. Why not Grace instead? Those ludicrous diminutives. It's as silly as naming your daughter Vanessie, Abigailie, Madeleinie or Scarlettie, just to put an example. It may be cute as a pet form, but JUST THAT.

I think I have to agree with Mindy. Name her Grace, and call her Gracie. When she gets to be an adult, she can go by Grace.

This is such a sweet name. Even what it means: grace, graceful, graceous. And then Gracie just makes me think of a little girl (and even an adult) who is full of grace, smiling, compassionate. Great name. Too bad it has fallen back in popularity a bit everywhere as of now. It's too sweet, just Gracie.

I don't understand why people put this on the birth certificate. It's even longer than Grace! You can still call her Gracie if her name is Grace; but then it gives her an alternative. Imagine a teacher bellowing at you "Gracie!" or a boss talking about "Gracie". It's not so sweet then, it's kind of awkward. Best to name her Grace and let her choose who addresses her by a familiar nickname.

For me, it's almost like putting "Graciekins" or "Sweetheart" on the birth certificate.

Dame Gracie Fields (1898-1979) was a famous and much-loved English singer. Her real name was Grace Stansfield.
Simarlarly, Gracie Allen's real name was Grace - born Grace Ethel Cecile Rosalie Allen (too bad about the Ethel!).

Gracie is cute - as a nickname for the more grown-up and dignified Grace, as in these examples.

My mother wanted to name me Gracie. Personally, I prefer the name Grace, with Gracie as a nickname. Gracie sounds very youthful. But it would have been horrible on me, since my last name begins with Gr, and I am far from graceful.
-- tayleigh  1/16/2010
I disagree with the people who are suggesting you should just name her Grace and call her Gracie. Why not name her Gracie and she can go by the shortened version of Grace if she prefers? It's not like as an adult or even student you can't say on day one "Hi, I'm Gracie but I go by Grace." Although I personally think Gracie can sound sophisticated even as an adult anyway! Beautiful and sweet name.

"Gracie Lou Freebush" was the undercover name of Sandra Bullock's FBI character in 'Miss Congeniality'.
-- JW41926  5/4/2010
Uhhh. Very very cute nickname. But don't put this on your daughter's birth certificate.
-- Chrila96  10/4/2010
I can't believe people saying that this shouldn't be on a birth certificate.
Gracie is just fine as is.

"Gracie" was the name chosen for himself by Graeme Garden in an episode of the TV comedy series "the Goodies" when he was pretending to be a teenage schoolgirl (complete with gym tunic and hockey stick) - presumably because it was the closest thing to a female form of Graeme that he could think of.

Tim and Bill teased him by calling him "Amazing Gracie".

My name is Grace and I HATE it when people call me Gracie, it's childish and annoying. All the Graces I know can't stand it either, and trust me I know A LOT of Graces (very popular name though I can't work out why).

My mother's name is Grace and she has gone by Gracie ever since I can remember. I think it's lovely!
-- Ruta Graveolens  10/26/2012
This is really, horribly infantile. Just name the kid Grace and call them this as a nickname if you like it so much, but do not use this as real, legal name. It sounds too immature.
-- sunshinechild67  12/25/2012
Why not use Gracie on a birth certificate? The name is very sweet and it does age well. Have parents had a hard time using Mary, Lily or Ellie on birth certificates? What makes Gracie different? It's lovely.
-- Anonymous User  3/20/2013
I don't think you should put Gracie on a birth certificate, and although it's a little better I don't think you should put Ellie either. Some names are better left as nicknames for longer, more sophisticated names, just in case the bearer wants to sound a little more professional one day. I can imagine a forty year old woman or a doctor named Grace, but something like Dr. Gracie Smith sounds really ridiculous. There's really nothing wrong with Grace and if you're so worried about its popularity, just use something else. It's really not worth it. Nicknames are for fun, if the bearer doesn't like their full name, or if its too long. Not to be used as full names.

Hmm, I personally take a little bit of offense from all these comments about Gracie being a horrible given name and not able to age well! I have to disagree completely, and not just because it is my own given name. I'm only 21 right now, but I haven't felt like my name de-matures me in anyway. I don't see how it's different from names like Casey, Hailey, Emily etc. Anything that ends in a "ie" "y" "ey" sound has a cutesy effect to it, in my opinion, and Gracie is even more classic than ones like Hailey or zoey or Kaylee. I'm going to be called Gracie my whole life--at age 2, 7, 27, 48, 74 etc... if people really condescend because it doesn't sound serious enough, at least my name isn't something like 'Princess' or ya know... 'North West.'

And to whomever said it was like making "Abigailie" etc a given name--I think adding "ie" to the end of one-syllable names is completely different and perfectly acceptable. I would have no problem putting Janie, Evie or Katie on a birth certificate. I believe in naming a kid what they're going to be called regularly, and saving the nicknames for a more special association. My parents call me Gracie regularly, and then call me "Grace Monster" because I was a crazy little kid and they would call me that when I got wild. And sometimes my dad calls me just Grace like in a "oh hey, Grace!" when I telephone him kind of way. What's wrong with that?

This is the name of Selena Gomez's younger half-sister. Her full name is Gracie Elliot Teefey (born June 12, 2013).

Gracie is a pretty, girly and cute name. (#⌒∇⌒#)ゞ I DON'T agree with people saying something along the lines of: "name her Grace on the birth certificate, and call her 'Gracie' as a nickname". If people like a nickname as a name, then let them use it! Why should they use a full version of a name if they secretly dislike it and really prefer the nickname? I am in a similar case where I prefer the name "Janie" more than the name "Jane" and I plan on using Janie instead of Jane on the birth certificate. Respect people's well thought out decisions! Be grateful names like Gracie and Janie actually have good meanings, 'kay?! ಠ╭╮ಠ.
