08/19/2023 03:17:58

My name is Grace. I like it because It's straight-forward, unadorned and not too girly. It ends on a solid note, which is much less trite than a girl's name that ends in -ie or -a. I think you've got to be a Grace to appreciate the name fully.

08/18/2023 09:22:20

My daughter's name is Grace - she's Grace Ruth after my grandmother and great aunt. We usually call her Gracie. I thought it would be a different name, but so far we have met three other little girls named Grace, and my little one is only 2 and 1/2. We're biased, obviously, but we love the name.

06/28/2023 20:29:34

Love it, It's a classic. But I can see from the chart that it is about to become the new trend...and it will be completely run into the ground.

06/24/2023 09:13:24

Our daughter's name is Grace Rebecca. The'show Little House on the Prairie had a character named " baby Grace " and I liked the name. I found out later tha our daughter's great-grandma's name was Grace, also!

My oldest daughter's name is Grace. We named her after my grandmother. Her full name is Grace Ann Elizabeth which rolls off the tongue very nicely. It's a beutiful name that compliments other names very well. She is wonderful and the name fits her perfectly. She likes being called Gracie as well. My nickname for her is 'Lizi' after her mid name - Elizabeth.

05/18/2023 17:01:34

Grace reminds me of an old lady...not really a 21st century name to me.

05/05/2023 00:45:08

My names Grace, well actually Graceful, its wierd but original...i've never come accross anyone with the'same name. Grace is a fine name it can be plain depending on how you look, or how you act. But if the name is put with a vibrant character it will suit.

04/30/2023 02:54:10

04/24/2023 04:22:00

LUVV it!!! It's more popular, but not TOO popular!! i know like 2 other graces

04/20/2023 17:47:02

Love it! It was my great-grandmother's name and I have always planned on using it, even before it became popular. Perhaps it is a little plain as suggested, but my name (Patty) was always different than other girls my age so something classic and simple appeals to me.

04/08/2023 05:25:46

I love this name. It'sounds beautiful. It is definately on the list of potential names for me!

04/08/2023 02:11:48

My name is grace. I am 13.I used to not like but now I love it. The only negative I have is there are five graces in my year at school.

04/02/2023 09:49:56

It is what It'suggests.... simple or plain doesn't always mean something boring. Grace is something given'to us and should never be overlooked

03/28/2023 01:24:10

My name is Grace Lee, and Im 33. I didnt like my name that much when I was a child. The only other Grace I knew was my Grandma. Now as an adult I do like my name. I get complimented on it often. Alot of family, and friends did, and still do call me Gracie, and I dont mind it. I think its cute!

03/16/2023 19:19:08

My daughter's name is Grace Elizabeth too! She is 8. We also call her Gracie even'though now (since she's so mature:) she informed us that wants to be called Grace. I think It's such a pretty name. Grace was my great aunt's name and my husband and I were married in a Lutheran Church named Grace Lutheran, so the name had special meaning to us.

03/13/2023 18:26:04

It's my name, and would people quit making puns on it❤️ Other than that, I like it. Short and sweet. It also goes well with my siblings' names as well when we were all smaller.

03/08/2023 23:31:26

I love the name Grace...It's so pretty, but I find it a little plain. I totally plan on naming my first daughter "Anna Grace", even'though ever'since I started going on these baby name'sIt's I have read about a lot of people naming their kids that.

02/17/2023 10:28:38

12/06/2022 10:18:42

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

11/20/2022 04:01:38

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!

11/05/2022 01:39:44

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!!!

10/31/2022 14:05:56

09/19/2022 13:10:42

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.

09/19/2022 01:43:00

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.

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.

10/05/2021 01:42:54

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.

09/28/2021 01:21:18

07/26/2021 14:47:42

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

07/19/2021 05:17:06

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.
