  • "My name is Grace Elizabeth and my close friends and family call me "Gracie." One of my friends calls me "Graceful" though, and my sister's boyfriend calls me "Gracious." I LOVE my name. Though the puns are off the chart and sometimes annoying but I always laugh 'cause they're funny XD. Kind of ironic too because I am the opposite of graceful. My brother used to think Amazing Grace was written after me and any other Christian song with my name. My manager breaks out in song when he sees me all the time too. "Grace, Grace, God's Grace" is what he sings... LOL" Nov. 9, 2017: Report as inappropriate

Not only is she graceful but very athletic and talented...Grace is amazing at everything she tries! We named her after a dear friend who passed away when I was pregnant(Viola Grace)so we had no idea how popular the name was but I always get a kick when we run into another Grace.
