I'm from a large Catholic family, but no one really has Catholic names. It's not really a law/rule that if you're Catholic, you have to have a Catholic name, at least here in America. I actually only knew a couple of friends who are Catholic that have religious names: Mary and Elizabeth, but these are also common names, so I don't normally tag them as "religious" The rest do not.
I suggest looking at biblical names like: Abigail, Jezebel, Deborah, Lydia, Rachel etc... (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_women_in_the_Bible)
or possibly saint names: http://www.catholic.org/saints/female.php
or, since you have a Grace, maybe other "faith" words like: Hope, Faith, Joy, Serenity, etc...
