Personal experiences with the name Ace: | Edit

My toddler son couldn't pronounce the name of his cousin, Angus. It came out, "Ace". The name has stuck! An unexpected yet perfect nickname for Angus.

Friend of Joseph. Soldier of Damien.

I know an Ace, but she's a girl. She uses it as a nickname for Grace. I think it suits her much better than her real name. She is a great writer, does kung nu, and plays the piano. She has short blond hair and blue eyes. She is pretty awesome.
