Thanks smile

Grace! A timeless classic smile

I like both but I think grace is more classic and simple so I'd choose that. Also Scarlett might end up as 'scar' which isn't great!

OP why two tt's for Scarlett isn't it like the colour Scarlet?

Either, but not keen on tt spelling.

@Whenwillwe3meetagain no? Scarlett is the known name.

Thanks for the comments.

It would be Grace Madeleine.

Grace by very many miles, a beautiful classic name, pretty when they are a little girl and and classy when they grow up.

Scarlett is lovely.

I used to love the name Grace, but I'm utterly bored of it now. Very overused as both a first and middle name.

And the spelling for the name is Scarlett, for those PPs questioning the spelling. Like Scarlett O'Hara and Scarlett Johansson.

Scarlett of course.

Grace is boring and bland.

Very different names. Grace.

Whenwillwe3meetagain Fri 19-May-17 22:30:55

Ah I stand corrected!
Although I think the tt version seems more American
This was interesting: In 2010, 78% of the baby Scarletts out there received the traditional spelling of the name, while 22% spell it with one T. It really comes down to preference. Some people feel like the name looks incomplete without that extra T. Others feel that it looks better with only one T. Scarlett with two Ts is the traditional surname spelling (from the occupation name), while Scarlet with one T describes the color (as in ‘scarlet’ woman, ‘scarlet’ fever, ‘scarlet’ begonias, etc).

I prefer Scarlett by far, but they are such different names - I think you need to see what the baby looks like and her temperament before you decide between them.

Ohyesiam Fri 19-May-17 22:43:19

I agree with hariq . I was men on Scarlett, but thought that it sounded like an extravert 's name, and of she was plain and shy it might not suit her. Then I realised that I was unlikely to be able to tell in time to register her name!
Turns out she spends half her life on stage, and it would have suited her well. Hindsight.

I realise the name may have totally different associations for you.

Grace is lovely to though.

I've not helped much have I?
