Gracie Origin and Meaning

The name Gracie is a girl's name of English origin.

Cute Gracie is one of the more recently revived nickname names by parents who chose it over the more formal Grace--or variations like Graziella or Grania. Country singers Faith Hill and Tim McGraw cut straight to the nickname when they called one of their daughters Gracie, and actors Ron Livingston and Rosemarie DeWitt named their newborn daughter Gracie James. Gracie Gold is a popular young figure skater.

There have been several (mostly young) Gracies in such vehicles as The Nanny, Friday Night Lights, CSI and Miss Congeniality.

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.
