Yeah, come to think of it, it is a little overused as a middle name. I like it better as a first name, as my best friend's name is Grace. I call her Grass; she prefers being called that. -Izzy

I love my name! I did not like it when I was a kid because nothing at the'stores like pencils or key rings had my name. Now people always remember my name because they think of God's Grace or Princess Grace Kelly. My husband loves my name too!

11/5/2022 1:39:44 AM

We named our daughter Grace Rebecca. The name Grace came from the tv show " Little House On The Prairie ". After naming her, I discovered that her great-great grandmother's name was Grace. Also, in the church I grew up in ( Lutheran ) the concept of Grace was very important. When Grace was born in 1997, this was a very unique name, at least where we lived. When she went of to Wheaton College ( IL. )to study flute and piccolo, there were 7 Graces in her freshman class!!!

I named my second daughter Grace Elizabeth. It is such a lovely, elegant name and can be carried off at any stage of life. We call her fits her'so well. She loves her name.

9/19/2022 1:43:00 AM

We named our Daughter Greta and we love it. She is 4 and I call her Greta Gum drops when I want to make her laugh. Lots of people spell it wrong but I think that is pretty common in all names that are a little different. My husband's Dutch Grandmother'says this name perfectly, pronouncing the "r" and the "t" with a dutch accent - It'sounds beautiful. In our English accent (canada/US) We get lazy and most of the time it comes out "Greda". This is something to consider with this name.

2/11/2022 9:23:42 AM

The reason I spelt Gracelyn the way I did is because her name would already have eight letters so think of her in kindergarten spelling out Gracelynn or the way Iwanted to spell it Gracelyne but my husband said SHE WILL NEVER fit it on her paper.

2/2/2022 3:51:36 PM

Grace is a BEAUTIFUL name. My daughter is named Grace and I picked it as soon as I knew I was having a girl. With all these silly names out and about a name like Grace is for any age.

10/5/2021 1:42:54 AM

My daughter's name is Gracelyn Elaine. I thought the name Grace was just a little too common, so I added the 'lyn' to make it her own. It's a beautiful name for the most beautiful girl.

9/28/2021 1:21:18 AM

My middle name is Grace,and this is what I am using now.I hated my first name and got teased about it a lot.Where I came from, Grace is so common ,so I use my first name.When I'move to the US,I used Grace,I love this name!!I get compliments and I am not anymore embarassed when I have to introduce myself.I am glad I got a pretty middle name.That's the good thing about middle names there is another choice if you don't like your first name.

7/26/2021 2:47:42 PM

My name is Grace Elizabeth and my close friends and family call me "Gracie." One of my friends calls me "Graceful" though, and my sister's boyfriend calls me "Gracious." I LOVE my name. Though the puns are off the chart and sometimes annoying but I always laugh 'cause they're funny XD. Kind of ironic too because I am the opposite of graceful. My brother used to think Amazing Grace was written after me and any other Christian song with my name. My manager breaks out in song when he'sees me all the time too. "Grace, Grace, God's Grace" is what he'sings... LOL

7/19/2021 5:17:06 AM

What a beautiful name. We are going to name our daughter this. Timeless. I love that It's not over'sed to and not "trendy." Which of course makes it timeless.

7/10/2021 2:29:42 PM

HI'my name is Grace. I get complimented a lot in CCD and as an alter'server in church. It's always good because it is easy to remember It's meaning. Also I'm 11 so now you know this name from a kid's perspective.

7/6/2021 5:16:12 AM

I love Grace! I'm having a girl and plan to name her Grace. Its a classic, beautiful name with an equally beautiful meaning. It maybe plain to some but I feel with all the exotic names of today its a very refreshing sound.
