We've had the hardest time coming up with names for this soon-to-be-born little girl of mine. It's ridiculous I tell ya...lol.

My 21mo DD's name is Georgia Mae, and we love it.

We're now contemplating the name Grace - which I love, but I'm stuck on what to use as a middle name. "Marie" or "Ann" is out - too common for middle's with people my age and half my family have those as first AND middles so they'll all argue over who she was named after...lol.

We're thinking Grace Catherine so far, but I'd love to hear what names you can come up with... Thanks!

Heather (40) DH (41) Georgia Mae b. 9/3/08, Charlotte Grace 7/17/10.

I absolutely love the name Grace, but I think it works much better as a middle name than a first name, as far as flow and musicality go. Have you considered naming her Catherine Grace, but still using Grace as her primary name? Lots of people do go by their middle names.... just a thought. And how wonderful, the world needs more Grace!

I was going to suggest Grace Mae (that was one of our names for last baby, but he is a he!), but that obviously won't work. I also like Grace Elizabeth or Grace Ella. Love, love, love the name Grace!

WOW - nice names ladies!!!

So far my fav's you've all listed are:

Grace...
Elizabeth
Evelyn
Caroline
Olivia
Delilah

In fact, I love Grace Elizabeth so much that it's now tied for 1st place with Grace Catherine!

I'd love to use a name starting with the letter "A", but then her initials would be GAG...lol.

This is REALLY helping me, so keep them coming!!!! Thank you ladies so much!

NorthernPixie: I *LOVE LOVE LOVE* the name Heather! Which is a good thing, since that is MY name

I wouldn't have a problem using it, but I'd rather not have to answer any questions my children might have, such as, "why wasn't I named after you but Gracie was?", or, have a 13yo screaming, "I hate that I was named after you!!!" lol...

Georgia Mae

and...

Grace Teadora

-This is my fave because both girls would share the long 'a' sound and the 'or' sound

Grace Isabella (Gracie Belle, Graciebella)

Grace Delaney (Gracie-D)

I think Grace sounds really pretty when it's followed by a name that starts with a vowel. I love Grace Eleanor, Grace Irene, Grace Elena, Grace Ellen, and Grace Eileen, and also Grace Elizabeth, which you already had. Its sounds like you like the really pretty classic names, not super popular, but kind of old fashioned.
I also like the name Graciela.
Marie is my older sister's middle name, and BOTH me and my oldest sister have Anne for our middle names. I felt totally gypped.

I love the first name Grace. I had an Aunt Grace and she was just the most lovely lady...

I think of:

Grace Eleanor
Grace Genevieve (GG/Gigi would be an adorable nickname)
Grace Juliet
Grace Lucinda
Grace Irene
Grace Camilla
Grace Genevra
