    Mary Grace vs. Mary Jane

    I want to use the first name Sadie to honor my fiance's grandmother, Sarah. And I planned to use Mary Grace as a double middle name to honor other family members. But the other day Sadie Mary Jane came to mind, as I thought that could work too. But what are your thoughts? Which do you prefer, Sadie Mary Grace or Sadie Mary Jane? Does Mary Jane still carry negative connotations?

    I really like Sadie Mary Grace. I like Sadie Mary Jane, too, but I definitely prefer Sadie Mary Grace.

    Sadie Mary Grace sounds pretty! But the double ie/y ending sounds kind of funny... I think either Sarah Mary Grace or Sadie Grace Marie would sound a touch better. I love Sadie Mary Grace anyway, though!

    I see what you're saying about the ie/y ending, but I intend to pronounce Mary Grace as if it would be hyphenated, like Mary Ann or Mary Kate. It would sound less choppy (Say-DEE Marygrace vs. Say-DEE Mare-EE Grace) I think.

    Sadie Mary Grace is GORGEOUS! I'm not a big fan of Jane, and Mary Jane doesn't catch my attention. Mary Grace is really sweet, though, and I love it with Sadie.
