That's about it really! I love the name Grace, but it is very popular in my part of the world. Any ideas welcome!

Joy!

My dc1 middle name! I love it. The only other one I've come across is in dc2's class. Little chinese girl and I think her parents chose it as a direct translation of something that works as a name in chinese.

Of course Faith is lovely too.

Not a virtue name, but starting with gr I love Greta.

Not sure why - but it just has the same kind of "feel" as Grace imho

Is it because it sounds like "Grace and Favour" TillySM ?

As in free holiday homes for our hardworking ministers.. grin

I have a Grace and a Faith, if DS was a girl he would have been called Joy. All nice, fairly timeless names.

Tillyscoutsmum Fri 09-Oct-09 16:10:44

grin @ choccy. Not sure really - both names just put me in mind of a certain "type" of girl (very pretty, delicate, sweet, girly - i.e bugger all like my dd !).

I seem to have lost all naming imagination with this pregnancy! Don't even know if I'm having a girl!

I know a little girl with the middle name Joy, and she really is one.
