Name Meaning

From the abstract noun (via Old French, from Latin gratia), this name occurs occasionally in the 15th century, and by the 1540s was among the most popular girls' names in some parishes. It has always been particularly popular in Scotland and northern England (borne, for example, by Grace Darling , the lighthouse keeper's daughter whose heroism in 1838 , saving sailors in a storm, caught the popular imagination). In more recent times it was famous as the name of the actress Grace Kelly ( 1928–82 ), who became Princess Grace of Monaco. In Ireland it is used as an Anglicized form of Gráinne .
