As most of you on the community, I too have my (albeit short) list of "Love-them-hope-to-use-them-in-the-future" names :D
Grace is definitely one of them. I think it's such a feminine and sweet name, that represents a wonderful virtue.
Plus it's the English version of my mother's name, so it would be a way to honor her as well.
Though I see that many people commonly use it as a middle name (as it fits with almost every girl's name), I, on the contrary, would love to use it as a first name.
But I haven't found the middle name to go with it yet.

Of course, it's still more than possible that if I do get to use it for a daughter, I'll chose a middle name that has a meaning of sort to me and the father.
But still, I'd like to find a combo that I like.

Would you mind helping and dishing out some suggestions?
I think a name that is unique and slightly longer will complement it better. I also love biblical names-- but not limited to. Possibly rich with meaning :P

I'm also curious to know what you all think of Grace
Thanks in advance (:

Thanks, Yas! That's A LOT of names lol :P

I really like:
-Grace Penelope
-Grace Evelynn
-Grace Kathryn (This has a really good flow! Though I prefer Cathryn)
-Grace Tamara (I don't know why, but in the past month, I've come to really, really love Tamar)
-Grace Victoria

Also, from your list, I love Victoire, Elizabeth,Hannah, Juliet, Abigail, Mathilda and Rebecca. But I don't think they flow with Grace plus they'd make lovely first names.

Oh and I'm not a fan of the variations, sorry :D Grace is the one. Gracie could be a nn though!

I also love Grace even though its very common, especially for middle names. The fact that it has special meaning to you is even better. You're right though, it is very pretty and elegant.

Grace Noelle
Grace Katherine
Grace Scarlett
Grace Violet
Grace Riley
Grace Isabella
Grace Hannah <--- both mean Grace. :D
Grace Juliet
Grace Genevra
Grace Victoire
Grace Charlotte
Grace Olivia
Grace Lydia
Grace Sophia
Grace Katerina

Isaline Grace
Vivienne Grace

Hope this helps. :P

Grace Katherine
Grace Lydia
Grace Sophia
Grace Katerina


Vivienne Grace


These are the ones I like best (:
And ohh, you're spoiling me with Vivienne Grace!
You can't imagine how much I love Vivienne! But I'd rather not use Grace as a middle name ): too common.

What do you guys think of
Grace Magdalene
Grace Shiphrah (It means beautiful in Hebrew)
Grace Miriam
?

I also like how Moriah is written, but I don't like the pronunciation at all.
It's mo-RIE-ə (much like Mariah), while I like MO-ree-ah.

And Yas, I do like Cathrine spelled with the Y Cathryn. It's just the K that bothers me a little. Seems a bit harsh (:

I'm loving Maryam, which would be the Arabic form of Mary.

Mary:
Usual English form of Maria, which was the Latin form of the New Testament Greek names Μαριαμ (Mariam) and Μαρια (Maria) - the spellings are interchangeable - which were from the Hebrew name מִרְיָם (Miryam). It was most likely originally an Egyptian name, perhaps derived in part from mry "beloved" or mr "love". {from behindthename.com}

ThinkBabyNames lists the Hebrew meaning of Mary as whished-for child.

I really think it's great that a baby's name means beloved, whished for. What do you guys think of Grace Maryam? *mumble*

Hmm.

Maryam was never one of my favourite names.. (All of the Miriams I know, are over 70!)

but Grace Maryam is cute. :P

Ooh. What about Grace Zipporah? :D

Grace Maryam is lovely. Great flow and pleasantly unique

Thanks, Rose!

Here's what Think Baby Names has to say about Mary:

The girl's name Mary \m(a)-ry\ is pronounced MARE-ee. It is of Latin origin, and its meaning is "star of the sea". Saint Jerome associated the Virgin's name with the Latin phrase "stella maris". Other possible meanings are (Hebrew) "wished-for child; rebellion; sea of bitterness".

So yeah, it's one of the possible meanings :P

Yas, sorry, but I don't like Zipporah!
I do, however, like Eliana. It means "my God has answered" in Hebrew.
(I know, I'm a sucker for Hebrew names, especially the ones with a rich meaning)

Hehe.

Hebrew names are okay.. but to me, they get kinda boring! :P

I know too many of my friends with hebrew names (But, proper hebrew names! Like, Israeli names) and it get's old. :D

Me too! Especially because, practically speaking, there a lot more names for boys that are not 'too out there'. If you know what I mean :P
Most of the biblical names for girls are not usable in my opinion. I would never see a person today named Jochebed or Keren-Happuch, lol :D
Whilst there are so many options for boys!
But I do think that there are a few feminine biblical names that are beautiful (:


Alyssa, I like the flow, too! I'd definitely use Vivienne because I love it too much!

What about Grace Vivienne? Doesn't flow as well as Vivienne Grace, but its still beautiful.

And my guitly pleasure Hebrew is Tzipporah. I'd never use it but I love it (:
