    You know my last name... do you think it sounds o.k. with Grace as a first name.. I feel it runs together a tad, but I am not thinking it is a show stopper??

    My thoughts? I wouldn't consider re-using a name; there are so many other lovely names. And Grace is well-used. I met a wee Faith lately...

    However, that's just my personal opinion. I think it's perfectly okay to do that if you wish.

    Yes, Grace does run a little bit into your last name. Hmmm, how about: Hope, Faith, or Joy?
    Or you could go with Anna-Grace, which doesn't run into your last name as much.

    You could perhaps make it a theme if you have future girls--give them all 3 names, with Grace somewhere in it. So something like Emma Addison Grace, Grace Caroline Belle, Clara Grace Amelia.
    I'm making up a 3rd for this baby and the name for the other just to show what I mean.

    If Emma's 12 and in favor don't worry. It's unusual but not a bad thing. My mother, her sisters, and their mother all have the middle name of Mary.
