    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?

    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.
