There are a million graces about in every school

Grace is lovely and elegant although quite popular at the moment (wouldn't bother me as DS has a top 10 name because DH and I loved it)

I don't like violet quite as much

Grace is boring

They are both lovely. Maybe see what the baby looks like, if she hasn't already been born.

Violet is horrible sounding, in my opinion.

Grace is a bit wet to me

Grace is a nicer name I think, but Violet is less popular if that's a concern. I like them both though.

Violet is very pretty and Vee could be a sweet nickname. Grace is ok on a graceful child.....

I much prefer Violet to Grace.

Grace. Violet makes me think VioLent

BabyGirl2016 Tue 09-Aug-16 15:32:39

Seems very mixed! Thank you

SpecialAgentFreyPie Tue 09-Aug-16 15:35:48

Could you do both, with one as a middle name?

MmmCazals Tue 09-Aug-16 15:37:28

I prefer Grace you could also consider Gracie?

I do love Grace as a name but if you don't want to have her in a class with other girls called Grace, go for Violet. NO Vi though pleeeeeaassseee!!!!

I have used both of these names as middle names. I'd go Violet, but it's a tough choice as both are lovely.

Violet. Gracie is everywhere (Gracie is awful as a full name as well, nn only)

Violet grace is lovely.

Violet was top of my girl list but then I had a wobble as think she'd get called viole_ (people dropping the T). I have a daughter with a name where all the kids drop the T and it bugs the heck outta me!

Both are very common amongst DC (4)'s peers, and both a little unfortunate if the bearer turns out not to be graceful or flowery. I'm big and clumpy and prone to clumsiness, I'd have been terrible within a flower name.
