We chose Gracie over Grace when naming our youngest. She's Gracie Anabel. I'm regularly asked if her 'real' name is Grace and have gotten a few looks when I say her 'real' name is Gracie. How dare we. We love her name!

PineWarrior Says:


My birthname is Grace but everyone always calls me Gracie-personally I find my name boring but I'm the only 'Gracie' in my school, so I guess that's a plus. . .

TheHumanCanvas Says:


Actually, I prefer Gracie as a full name to Grace. I'm not sure why, but Grace just doesn't quite sit right with me, whereas Gracie has both grace and character.

I love Gracie and I think it's perfectly fine to use as a full name, especially if Grace being monosyllabic doesn't work with your monosyllabic surname (Like me!). I've known a now adult Gracie since childhood and the name's apparent "babyish" sound has not hindered her success in the workforce at all. This is one of my three set in stone choices for a girls' name.
