A really great friend of mine's name is Grace. She is an extremely beautiful woman. She has a slightly...

My mother-in-law's name was Grace. Her middle name was Eleanor. I think that was such a beautiful combination!

I knew a girl named Grace once who murdered my family and then painted an oil painting of their dead corpses because she thought that the concept of death was beautiful. Nice girl! I will never forgive her!

My name is Grace Hiner, I disliked it at first because I thought it was an old lady name, and I always wanted a longer name. But now I really appreciate its rarity, even though it's common, I hardly meet other Graces. I hate all nicknames for Grace, and have since I was a toddler. Except my friends and coworkers call me Grass sometimes and I think it's the best nickname ever lol. I love the name Grace, I think it is aesthetically pleasing when written and typed. 10/10
