This is my name, and I’m not gonna lie, while I do like it, I don’t like how common it is. There are like 1 billion (exaggeration) students at my school named Grace so it can get pretty tiring going by “Grace” followed by the first letter of your surname, and I’m sure everyone with a really common name like mine will share my opinion.
I HATE this name. Terrible and hideous. Boring and bland like plain spaghetti.
Although it's a very popular middle name, I still love it. I probably will give Grace as a middle name of my future daughter.
I love this name, it's pretty. It sounds bland and boring but spicy and vibrant. I like that. My favorite combo is Grace Vivian. I love the combo Grace Marie. It's very common, but very beautiful. Some more combos are Grace Elizabeth, Grace Catherine, and Grace Renee. Grace is also a very nice middle name.

It's rather common but I adore this name.
Pippa Middleton named her daughter Grace Elizabeth in 2021.
Top 10 name in most European, English speaking countries in 2020. Pretty sound and meaning!
#1 name in Ireland in 2020.
Stunning! You’re literally calling your daughter “elegance, refinement, goodness, an undeserved gift”. I can’t think of a better meaning!
Grace Elizabeth is a Victoria Secret Model/Angel.
A super classy name! Grace sounds regal, yet approachable. It’s very feminine and has a beautiful meaning and sound. It has been ranked in the top 5-20 of baby girl names in the last 15 years when you combine all the spelling variations (Grace, Gracie, Gracelyn, Gracelynn). It’s a very common middle name, because it sounds beautiful with everything! It’s easy to spell and has an adorable nickname. It will never go out style and sounds fresh with today’s trends.
The following celebrities have used it for their daughters: Mark Walhberg, Mia Hamm, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Meryl Streep, Danny Devito, Christy Turlington and both Pippa Middleton and Bindi Irwin gave the name to their daughters in 2021. This name is clearly classy and trendy all at the same time. A beautiful choice!
The name is also overused and ugly. So if you are considering this name for a baby, I would scratch it off my list right away!
I love it as a first name. Classic but not frilly. You can't go wrong with Grace.
I like the name because it reminds me of the actress Grace Kelly, so it gives me vibes of being a beautiful, refined and vintage name but on the other hand I understand that there are people who see it too old-fashioned and "heavy". I think that with this name there are many mixed opinions, although most are generally positive.
I don't like the name Grace that much. I prefer Gracie, Gracelyn, Gracia, and other Gra- names. But this is elegant and pretty too, I just don't like it that much.
Grace has a kind heart and is very tolerant of every living thing.
I love this name even though it’s one of the most popular middle names. I think it’s because it just sounds good with almost everything. I also like it as a first name like Grace Victoria or something.
Bindi Irwin named her daughter Grace Warrior Irwin Powell who was born on 25 March 2021!
Boring, too bibley. And the phrase "Grace period" always sounds odd when you know someone named Grace.
A little better than Gracelyn, but still boring and plain. There isn't anything special about this name.
Classy and impressive name.
Sadly this name is getting rather overused as a middle name :/ BUT it is still a very lovely name and a good choice ^^
I only like it as a middle name and IDK why. It just sounds better. Like Reagan Grace or Ashley Grace or Ana Grace. You get the point right?
I just love the boringness of it as a middle name.
I don't even know why but I just love this name and always have, it's so pretty and classy sounding. I hope to use it for my future daughter for one day :)
Grace is awesome for a middle name, I don’t like it as a first name though.
Charli Grace D’Amelio.
It seems sort of bland, but at the same time spicy! I like it.
I knew a girl called Grace, she was a rebel. I love this name. Gra (pronounced GRAY) can be a nickname?
My friend is named Grace, I find I accidentally type it as "Grave" on my phone if I'm going kind of fast, haha. Kind of morbid, but maybe something to keep in mind - the letters are pretty close to each other on the keyboard, and it happens pretty frequently.
Best as a middle name; I also like Grayce.
Noisynora, Roger That!
What a disGRACEful name!
DisGRACE.
HELLO PEOPLE! My name is Grace. If you have a baby, name it Grace after ME hehe >:) Here is some boring info: In Latin, the name Grace means God's Grace. Here are some famous Graces: Grace Huang, Grace Kelly, Grace Jones, Grace Gummer, the daughter of Mark Wahlberg and Rhea Durham, the daughter of Christy Turlington and Edward Burns, the daughter of Rupert Murdoch. Nicknames my friends call me: Gracella, Gracelynn, Gracia, Graciana, Gracie, Rae, Grazy, Grass, G-Wagon, Disgrace, Gigi, Gia, Ace, Gracisism, and Lady Gracelot. SO BASICALLY! Graces are art-eeeests. We sing. We act. We draw. We play. We laugh. We talk a lot (sorry). We exist (duh). AND WE ARE DISGRACES OF THE UNIVERSE! Just kidding, I'll stop. My point is: Not all Graces are bad. We can be the sweetest little dear in the world. It's just some of us choose bad choices. But some of us are good. Just a little shy. Like me. Please don't hate anymore. It hurts my feelings.
Very plain boring name. The only Graces I knew did not in any way have any Grace whatsoever!
Grace is a terrible name.
I knew somebody named Grace. Let’s just say she wasn’t very graceful.
I have always found the sound of "Grace" to be the opposite of what it describes. It's a bucket of ice cold water, right in the face - like a frozen fist. Even the nickname "Gracie" hardly softens it.
What is unfortunate about quality names is that the individual is likely not to fit into them. Imagine a person who is clumsy or lacks social Grace. They may be teased for having a non-befitting name.
I adore the name Grace. It's such a classy, elegant, feminine and strong name. You could never go wrong with Grace :)
I think this name is really nice! My best friend is called Grace-Bella Marie and she is sooo sweet so this name is perfect for her.
Grace is a nice name, and it's a very common middle name. A common middle name to pair with Grace is Grace Marie. I know 4 Grace Marie's, no kidding. It's a very pretty name combination, so I get the the point. You should name your daughter Grace.
It sounds okay but it's quite common. Also, it's sort of bland as a middle name.
It’s pretty but so overused. At this point, it feels like a filler name.
I named my daughter Eden-Grace and she is as sweet and gentle as the name suggests. I chose this name for her 20 years before she was born and never changed my mind.
I like this name.
My name is Grace and I think that my name isn't that creative, But that's just my opinion.
My mother in law repeatedly suggested this name when I was pregnant. I just don't like it. To me, Grace sounds old fashioned and bland.
I just don't like the pronunciation. It reminds me of grease. Cute name though and I love the meaning.
I know a lot of people are gonna say Rose, Grace and Marie are basic middle names but Grace is really pretty, it’s like graceful and elegant ❤️.
My best friend is called Grace I don’t really like the name because it sounds too harsh, not soft. I call my best friend Gracie for a nickname.
I adore the name Grace. It's both modest and elegant. Gracie is also a really cute diminutive.
I’m not too fond of the pronunciation as it isn’t as soft as other names deep down in my throat but it’s still a beautiful name! So many girls are getting named this, and it deserves the popularity! ;)
I know quite a few Graces, as the name is increasing in popularity. However, it’s increasing for a good reason. The name is beautiful and seamless. It is short and sweet, which I love.
My parents almost named me Grace (they decided on Claire instead) I do think Grace is a pretty name though but it is extremely overused as a middle name. For people thinking it’s overused as a first name maybe they should check the charts because Emma, Olivia, Ava, Isabella, Sophia, Charlotte, Mia, Amelia, Harper and Evelyn are the names at the top of the list right now.
Britton Grace Jones is the daughter of “Quints By Surprise” Stars Ethan and Casey.
Hazel Grace Busby is the daughter of “Out Daughtered” Stars Adam and Danielle.
Grace is a cute name. It’s just EXTREMELY POPULAR- I know like seven people with the name Grace. It would be more original if someone did a second name to go along with it like, Grace Anne.

Rhymes with disgrace.
UNPOPULAR OPINION! I do not really like this name. It sounds tacky, overused and BORING. And the pronunciation is not something I like.
I have a friend called Grace but she is literally the exact opposite of the description.
Move over Charity, Joy, Hope and Faith. This is the only virtuous name I like and the rest of them get a VETO!
TIK TOK legend.
I have a friend named Grace and she is playful and comedic, she is not rude like the people who don't like the name Grace. My name is Gracie and it is the diminutive which I fit with my name while she doesn't.
Grace is a beautiful name. It actually feels graceful, in a way, and goes with a lot of other names. A friend of mine is named Emilie Grace (with Emilie as her first name and Grace as her middle name). I think that's a very pretty combination. Others include:
· Isabelle Grace
· Lucy Grace
· Madelyn Grace
· Grace Eleanor
· Grace Marilyn.
In 2018, 7 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Grace who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 199th most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.
We know it’s not a boy's name! We don’t have to be reminded! Thank you!
Super overused.
I think Grace is a very elegant and beautiful-sounding name. However, virtue names seem like tempting fate to me. My niece was almost named Grace, and she is very clumsy, so I always think it's lucky she wasn't named Grace after all. I've known two depressed women named Joy, a very pessimistic Hope, and a goth atheist named Faith. They are all great people, but their names are ironic and silly on them. I've never known a woman named Chastity, but at this point, I'd assume she's a sex educator or something.
It's okay but I prefer Carissa, which is much prettier and means the same thing. It's a good middle name though, as it's one syllable long.
For me Grace isn't a "male" name sorry to all those males but it's a girls name.
Grace is a tremendously overused middle name and frankly, I do not enjoy people that bear it.
As someone who bears this as a middle name, it is too common. There are way too many graces in my family. My youngest sister's name is Gracelynn! I used to like my name until my younger sister was born. Don't get me wrong, I love my sister. But, my mom and I don't really have a good relationship and I can't help but feel as if she is trying to replace me. Seeing as how I don't live with my mother, it kind of makes sense. Oh well! It's a little overused but if you don't know anyone with that name then go ahead and use it! Actually, don't let my bad experience tamper with yours. Do what you want!
I love this name! I plan on naming my first born daughter this. I loved the show Will & Grace and have loved this name ever since.
So overused! It's pretty, we get it, name your child something more original already!
Grace as a first, middle or last name is a winner! This name is a beautiful, timeless classic.
My name is Grace. Some of my friends are starting to call me "Gnade" (the german version) and others joke "race" because I'm an athlete and have running/sprinting records, and still other call me "Gray" just cause they think I deserve to have it shortened. My aunt calls me "Amazing Grace" after the song, and mom sometimes says "Glory" (2nd name)

I have never been called Gracie but I think that would be a pretty nickname, there are many movie characters I know that have that name.
My middle name is Grace but with my sporty and adventurous personality it does not sound right when people call me Grace so everyone just calls me my first name, Abigail. My friend, when she says my last name she says "ANDRADE, get over here!" Sometimes she will say my full name, "Abigail Grace Andrade get your butt over here!" lol.

My middle name is Grace. When I was a kid in the 70s I thought it was an old lady name, like Blanche. I didn't like it much then, but I like it now. Seems if you name a girl Grace it might influence her to be graceful and gracious, or at least a polite person! I have not known a lot of women with this name, but it's hard to imagine someone with this name who isn't nice.

Amelia Grace
Eliza Grace

Sophia Grace.
I like this name but it always reminds me of a boy I used to know named Grace. His parents really wanted a girl...

As a bearer of the name Grace, I don't like it and I'm actually changing my name soon (legally). It's too common and doesn't sound very nice - this is just my impression though.

I LOVE THE NAME! It is so elagant and beautiful. As a young girl, it is so cute and pretty, and as you get old it is a classic! My name is Grace and I love my name! ❤️.
This name is so elegant and cute. It is such a pretty name and I would definitely recommend naming your future daughter this name. :) It's super gorgeous!
I've heard lots of comments about how much people hate the name Grace and it's my name thank you very much and I think it's fine. I know that the name Gracie is a bit annoying but it's my name and I love it. I am actually Durísimo because I am in Half Spanish and half Welsh, but I prefer the name Gracie or Grace...
Grace is such a pretty timeless and elegant name, but it's so overused as a middle name (as well as Rose).
Grace Helbig is one of the funniest people on youtube and she is called 'Grace Anne'.
I think it is a really lovely name and would definitely call my daughter this if I ever have one.
Other names related are Grayson, or Greyson for boys.
Grace is also a really good middle name for names like Ava Grace, Olivia Grace, Layla Grace, Etc.
My name is Grace Catherine Saige. (with 2 middle names) After a great grandma named Catherine. For short as a kid I was called Gracey Catie.
I like this name. My sister named her flute Grace and she loves the name Gracelyn. Grace is a bit too popular so I suggest you use it as a middle name.
Earliest use of the name in England was in 1530. http://dmnes.org/cite/Grace/1530/LIWill-III.
My name is Grace Georgina and I used to hate it but now I love it and have a lot of pride in my name. A lot of people say that it is a common name and by the rankings, I see it is but I have only ever met 4 other Graces in my life time and I have been to 3 different schools.
It's an okay name, but I tend to associate it more strongly with little girls than women. It doesn't sound very mature, especially with the nickname "Gracie."
I think this name is fairly overused, especially as a middle name. Not as common as Rose, but more common than Elizabeth. The sound isn't very attractive, either. I'm not a huge fan of 'G' sounds in names, whether it's hard or soft.
My name is Grace and I love my name! It sounds so so elegant and classic. I agree that sometimes it can be overused. Where I live I have never met another one, which makes me feel very unique.
Grace, Faith, and Hope are all lovely names and should NOT be judged or called "OVERUSED".
I like my name. It sounds good since my middle name is Ellen. "Grace Ellen". Now that I'm 13 I love my first name as Grace and my middle name as Ellen.
I don't like it (no offense to any Graces). It just...doesn't sound feminine. The way it's said makes it seem less feminine. In my opinion its wayyyy too overused. I don't know. Not keen on it. The way it's pronounced makes it seem ugly.
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound!
I feel like everyone and their mother has this as their middle name, next to Rose and Marie. Honestly? It's sometimes just an easy filler name for parents who don't have time to choose a middle name.
My name is Grace and personally, the popularity of the name sucks. I know five other graces... in my grade.
What about Grace Callie?
Beauty, elegance, fluidity, kind, intelligent. My daughter, Grace, is all of these except elegant, difficult to be elegant at 14. She is named Grace after my mother, Gracine. My mother was named after her aunt Grace with the unique "ine" customization. She was born in 1920 when names like Maxine were popular. Her parents thought the ine was modernizing. My mother never met another Gracine.
I actually find this name quite pretty and the nickname Gracie is cute. But I don't think I would use it because of its religious association. I don't really like the names Hope, Joy or Faith as I find them all too bland and too much like words, and I find Hope and Faith too religious. But I actually don't mind the name Grace. Funny how that is.
I was named Grace after my maternal grandmother. It's a very pretty and classic name, but way too common for my liking, sometimes. There were five Graces, me included, and that was just in my graduating high school class.
As for nicknames, I'm usually just called Gracie by my family. However, my younger brothers used to call me "Grossy Gracie" as a joke. It didn't really bother me because it was just my family who called me that, and it was all in good fun. I am, however, not very graceful. In fact, I'm a total klutz, though my mother tells me that there's a certain sort of gracefulness to me.
The most beautiful virtue name. Classic--not dated to any certain decade. Suits all ages. Especially good to pair with a long last name.
"Grace passed away 30 years ago!" LOL This is just seriously such an old lady name. No matter how you slice it!
No offense, but this name isn't one of my personal favorites.
Grace is such a regal, classy name that will suit a child throughout all stages of her life.
It's my name and it (not to brag) is pretty cool and it isn't for 80 year olds, that's just mean. Grace means elegant and I'm thankful for my name.
Grace will forever be my name.
This is a beautiful name. Unlike a lot of virtue names, it is easy to pronounce and has a gorgeous and relatable meaning. It also rolls off the tongue- Grace. My best friend is named Grace, and she is exactly like her name!
Awwwwwwww! Thanks! That is my name and I love it. It is short and sweet, and unlike what people may think, it isn't that common. There are only 3 Graces at my school. I LOVE THIS NAME!
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.
This name is WAY too overused! I know about 4 Graces and 3 of them go to my school and this is also my cousins name, Grace Danielle. This name is just WAY too overused but I like it, more as a middle name though.
I love the name Grace ever since I saw the movie Gracie's choice and I still love it. I found a strong meaning and beauty to it. I can imagine a really strong person with this name.
This is Hazel Lancaster's middle name. She is the main character of The Fault in Our Stars book by John Green.
I love that Grace is common because I really adore the name Grace. This is one stunner of a name!
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.
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.
Grace reminds me of that character in the show The Nanny. And it remonds me of that hymm "Amazing Grace". It does sound very religious yes, but, don't hate on the name.
St. Grace of Lerida (Gracia)--the patron of Alcira, Valencia, Spain. She was the daughter of a Muslim caliph who converted to Christianity and was martyred in 1180.
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.
This is the only virtue name I can stand. IMO, the others just sound like words and not names. My family also thinks it's a good name.

Unfortunately, Grace is too common as a first and middle name. If it were ranked lower, I might have chosen it as a name for my future daughter.
"The Ladies of Grace Adieu" is a short story by Susanna Clarke. Grace Adieu is the name of a fictional town in Gloucestershire, England.
Beautiful and classic, but kind of a "safe" classic name, like lily or Emma. Still very pretty and best used as a first name rather than a middle name!
Grace is a beautiful name which shows a high character trait. It's classy but cute and simple. The name grows with a child and isn't too long or short. I love the name!
American actor Balthazar Getty and his wife Rosetta have a daughter named Grace (born 2001). Grace has 3 siblings: Cassius, Violet, and June.
Beautiful. To me it embodies the gratitude I feel for the existence of this wonderful being who happens to be our daughter. To my husband, it mainly is in memory of his grandmother.
Grace Ethel Cecile Rosalie Allen is the birth name of American actress and comedian Gracie Allen (1895-1964).
This is like the world's most common name! I hear it everywhere and when people have babies, I say what is your baby called? And then I think what am I saying obviously it's called Grace!
If my friend was having a daughter rather than a son, she would have named her Grace. I don't like it as a middle name because it's a bit overdone, but adore it as a first name. All the girls named Grace I've met have been sweet.

In Spanish it is Gracia. (GRAh-cia).

Grace is my name and I used to hate it but now I love it!
I think it's refreshing and beautiful.
I only know two Graces and no one with that middle name. It's a very beautiful name. I might name my first daughter Della Grace. I also like Gracia.
The Puritans did NOT invent the name Grace. It was already the name of an English saint in the Middle Ages.
I don't really like this as a first name. However, I absolutely LOVE it as a middle name. It sounds good with just about any name you pair it with.
A famous bearer of the name is actress Grace Jones.
I am using this as a 2nd middle name. I don't care that it is considered a filler middle name. It just sounds so lovely with Charlotte Olivia. (:
It's very cute, but a bit "little girl" like.
Grace Cahill is the name of Natalie Portman's character in the movie "Brothers".
I have a workmate named Grace, and she tells me the worst thing about having this name is that people find it very amusing to mention "Amazing Grace" when they meet her.

"Your name's Grace? Wow, that's amazing!"

"Grace? Now that's an amazing name ..."

Etc etc

While most name teasing finishes in high school, apparently adults of all ages still think this kind of banter is very clever and amusing, so it's still going.

Even the work newsletter will say things like, "I'm sure Grace will come up with something amazing for the end of year office party" and stuff like that.

It's interesting that so many people said people called Grace all seem to be clumsy, because Grace actually is rather hefty and klutzy, although I never saw this as an irony considering her name before.
I love this name! Though it can be hard to live up to. You're named Grace and all of a sudden people expect you to be graceful. Or maybe not I don't know from experience but it would seem that that might be an issue. Otherwise this name is just so cute and elegant and sweet.
This is the name of Dr. Grace Augustine, a xenobotanist and major character in the 2009 movie Avatar.
In general I don't find it a special name, but I dislike it even more so because of its popularity. I'm getting tired of hearing it.
Beautiful name, but getting way too common.
My middle name is Grace, and I really wish it was my first name. I hope the name Grace doesn't become too trendy and overused because I would like to name my own daughter Grace one day. Grace was my great grandmothers name and I think it is a beautiful name.
I find the name associated with Christianity. I always thought it was quite a religious name. Don't care for the sound "Grayse" is rather grating. Not a favorite, but very popular.
I have a friend named Grace Sarah and she's so delicate and sweet. I love the way here name flows and the way our Spanish teacher says it.
I automatically think of Grace Jones whenever I hear the name Grace. Love me some Grace Jones. If I were to name a child Grace it would probably be because of her.
For the longest time before I learned what "Grace" meant in religious terms, I thought that the song "Amazing Grace" was about somebody. I kept wondering "who is Grace and why is she so amazing?"
Grace is a really beautiful name.
No offense to any Graces, but I hate this name. It has so many harsh and ugly sounds, and it's getting extremely unoriginal as a middle and first name.
A famous bearer was American stage actress Grace Hartman (1907 - 1955). She was well known for her work in musical theatre, specifically "Angel in the Wings", for which she won the first Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical.
I think Grace is boring and unoriginal. It always reminds me "Grease".
Fantastic name like fantastic woman Grace Kelly.
Grace is the middle name of my little girl. I know Grace is overused as a middle name, but it just goes so well with a lot of first names.
I think it's pretty it's just a shame the adult Graces I run into are less than graceful and inspiring. Let's hope that changes with all the little Graces now running around.
I hate, hate, HATE it when people call me Gracie. It is the most diminutive, little-girlish nickname I can think of. The trouble is, Grace doesn't exactly lend itself to any other, better, nicknames. However, I have grown to like my name a lot more because where I live there are very very few Graces and it makes me feel unique. I do, however, get tired of people telling me I have a lovely, old-fashioned name, since I had nothing to do with choosing it. I think Grace as a middle name should be dealt with very carefully and make sure it doesn't interrupt the overall flow of the name.

I think that Grace is a rather pretty name. If I ever had a little girl, I might name her Grace Carolyn. This is after my grandmother; her first name is Carolyn, and she always wished her middle name was Grace. Since in my family we are in the practice of middle-naming our children after relatives, and since Grace is a pretty name in its own right, I think that Grace Carolyn would be a nice combination. Grace also has musical connotations to me, such as the song Grace (by U2) and Grace Slick, from Jefferson Airplane.
It's a very pretty name, but the almost inevitable association with Christianity is the reason I wouldn't want to use it myself. This is also far too common as a middle name. I must also admit that the first thing that comes to mind is a little girl rather than a woman, possibly partly because I actually watched The Nanny back in the 90s, and Grace was the youngest child on the show.
This is a beautiful name.
Grace is a classy name. It brings to mind an elegant, soft-spoken, yet strong woman of virtuous character.
Sounds like Grapes.
My parents were going to name me Grace, I think it's a pretty name but it would not have fit me at all.
I think Grace along with Elizabeth, Rose, Marie, and Ann are ugly, overused middle names.
I think this is a beautiful name, and I am considering using this for my first child's name if it's a girl.
This name is sort of cute, but I certainly prefer it as a middle name. There are so many Graces out there that it has lost all sense of identity.
Famous Bearer includes Grace Ingalls, the youngest of the Ingalls sisters (sister of famous author Laura Ingalls Wilder), and fourth daughter of Charles & Caroline Ingalls.

Grace's Character was in the later of the 'Little House' books, portrayed by twins Wendi/Brenda Turnbaugh in the famous '70's-'80's television series, and also in many miniseries and movies based off of the life of the Ingalls Family.

Carrie Ingalls was born in 1877. She died in 1941.
My parents named me after my late great grandmother Grace. I have always loved my name, as I feel it is unique in many ways. I know that there was a famous actress by the name of Grace Kelly, and a murderer and such, but I still only know 2 people by the name of Grace, and that is my Great Grandmother and me.
I get so annoyed with all this STUPID talk of Grace simply meaning graceful. It does not! It means something TOTALLY different! It means His saving Grace. That gift He gave to us by having His son die on the cross.
There was a language long, LONG before a man named Jesus was born to a COUPLE named Mary and Joseph. I know some don't believe it but not everything began with that very first christmas in that little barn.

Grace is a cute name. I guess I've met so many little Gracies that it's hard to picture an adult Grace. Even still, it's a solid name.
How interesting that at least one poster (apparently a Christian) finds any other interpretation of this name than a religiouous one STUPID. It is actually derived from the Latin "gratia," which has several connotations. Understandably, devout Christians might choose the name precisely for the religious connotations. Non-religious families might select it for different reasons. Film buffs (and royalists) might want to honor Grace Kelly. Popular music fans might name their child after Grace Slick or Grace Jones. Interesting that despite all their differences, these Graces are all considered a bit cool and aloof. BTW, since Anna and all its variants are derived from the Hebrew word for "Grace," combos like Grace Ann or Anna Grace might be viewed as redundant.
Grace O'Malley, another notorious female pirate during the Golden Age of Piracy.
My name is Grace Pearl. I used to be a little shy about telling people my first and middle names but now, I think its SO cool! (I am 41, but when I was 10, I was not happy with it) UNIQUE! "Grace" is making a big comeback these days.
Nice name. It has the sound of a rivulet. Good religious connotation.
Famous bearer--Grace Slick, vocalist in The Great Society, Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, and Starship. Currently an artist.
My mother says it would have been the ultimate irony if my name had been Grace. I am a total klutz. Everyone I know who has Grace as part of their name is a total klutz as well.
I love the name Grace. I think that it says that it means grace. Every baby is a grace so it's an approprite name. I like Julia Grace.
My first name is Mary Grace (I have no middle name). I absolutely love my name. I think it's beautiful, and I think it's a rather mature name, I mean I can't really see a little girl going by Mary Grace. That's why I was "Gracie" right up through college when I started going by Mary Grace. It truly is the perfect name, I honestly can't think of a better one. :D
I think this name is really pretty, it was supposed to be my name.
Actor Balthazar Getty and his wife Rosetta Millington have a daughter Grace (born 2001).
Not quite pretty enough for a first name, but I think it's CHARMING as a middle name. Like Lila Grace, Kate Moss's daughter. What an elegant combination.
There are no people named this in my grade, but I do agree that it is starting to get overused.
My daughter was just born in 2006 and I named her Grace. We have a very long last name and wanted something short and beautiful. Grace was it. It goes well with her middle name Lenore after my recently passed Grandmother.
I like this name. I find it beautiful and simply elegant, and not just because of Grace Kelly. It's also a name in my family, born by multiple ancestors and relatives of mine (as early as the 16th century).
My mother seriously considered naming me this, then she just named me something that means Grace. It's not so much that I don't like the name, as everyone I know (including myself) whose name is or means Grace is clumsy as all get out. I am a walking casualty case and so are most Graces I know. I beg people not to name their children this because it is like a curse. And beleive me it hurts to trip that much or run into that many doors.
My best friend is named Bethany Grace and she hates her first name and only goes by Grace but never Gracie. I find Gracie a bit annoying but Grace is a lovely name and I will always think of it fondly because of her.
Grace is the name of a song by U2. Some of the lyrics go: "Grace, it's a name for a girl. It's also a thought that changed the world."
I absolutely adore this name and if I have a daughter, I hope to call her Grace Elizabeth. I have been back and forth on this, I mean whether to use Grace Elizabeth or Elizabeth Grace. My Grandmother's first name is Elizabeth, it's my middle name, and one of my cousins' middle names. Both after her. If I get to use it, I will call her Grace Elizabeth, not just Grace, usually. Sometimes Gracie Beth.
My daughter's name is Grace. Although her full name is HanaGrace Leila Rose, but she loves the name so much, that she goes by Grace. We've called her that since she was born.
This is a lovely middle name!
Hate it. Sounds like an 80 year old woman.
Grace (Snyder) Edwards was the name of a character on the 1970s family drama "Little House on the Prairie".

Elisabeth & Tim Hasselbeck named their daughter Grace Elisabeth.
Debra Messing plays Grace Adler in Will and Grace.
Grace was used a lot from 1880 to 1920.
I noticed many Christian people name their daughters Grace to honor God and His grace.
I used to get very anoyed with my name because of the endless rhyming oppertunites kids loved to use eg. graceface etc. But it's only now that I've realised how lucky I am to have been given such a beautiful elegant name and I'm proud of it!
Famous bearer: Grace Ingalls, the youngest of the Ingalls sisters in Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House" books.
This name is used A LOT now for a middle name.
Grace is my middle name and never a prouder inital in my signature is there. I hated my first name but found a great pleasure in my middle name. It also diffreniated me from the other 3 or 4 Lynda's in my family. I realized a few years ago that most people don't sign their name in print not cursive with their middle name. I do, or abreviated with a proud middle initial.
I like Grace as a nickname for Gracelyn or Grace as a middle name. :)
A famous bearer is first lady Grace Coolidge.
I love this name very much, it's so timeless, beautiful, elegant and a great classic, I also love the nickname Gracie.
I just love the name Grace. Gracie is a great nickname while they are young and Grace works well when they are older.
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).
Grace means A gift you don't deserve. I love this name!
My middle name is Grace and I used to hate it! Now that I'm 13, I love it! I am very proud of my middle name, because as of a few years ago, I am named after a cancer survior!
I love this name, Gracie is a good nickname for a little girl.
Grace Metalious (1924 - 1964) was an American author, best known for the controversial novel Peyton Place.
OK, I live in Alabama and I am here to testify that every little girl who is born here has Grace either as a first or middle name. It's pretty but it is getting very trendy and unoriginal.
My grandmother's version of the name was spelled GRAYCE. I always thought that it was unique.
My name is Grace Regina and I have always liked the sound it. I've never disliked my name and I carry it with pride.
My middle name is Grace, but I've recently started using it as my first name because there are just too many Rebeccas, and a surprising number of people keep spelling it wrong, and I answer the class roll call at the wrong Rebecca - so Grace is much easier. It's a nice name.
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 like the name - it's elegant, but not too snooty. I think it can be nice with middle names. I like it.
I love this name. I think it is very beautiful. I just think it's hard to put with a middle name - example: Grace Lynn sounds too much like Graceland.
I really like this name, very beautiful yet simple and sophisticated, lovely.
Famous bearer is actress Grace Kelly (born Grace Patricia Kelly).
Overused as a middle name, but is always refreshing as a first name and can easily grow with a child.
It´s not only overused as a middle name, it´s also overused as a first name, it´s almost in the top ten.
