    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...

    I come from an Irish Catholic family. While my name isn't very traditional in that mindset, the other female members in my family definitely bear more traditional monikers.

    I'm super Irish Catholic, my parents are Galway natives who had 16 kids lol. One of the traditions of my family is to use 'Mary' as a first name for girls although typically we all went by our 'second name'. My mom is called Mary Ellen. Grandmothers are Cathleen (step grandma), Annemarie & Rosemary.

    My sisters are called:

    Mary Aileen
    Mary Enya
    Mary Brianna
    Mary Frances
    I'm called Johnna after my grandda John and the first without a Mary in front of my name but my middle name is Rosemary.
    Liadan
    Kyra
    Aingeal

    Some of my nieces are:
    Mary Claire, Catherine, Erin, Shannon, Tara, Colleen, Nora, Mary Anne, Mary Josephine
