My name is Grace Elizabeth. In American-English it means love, beauty, and fluid in movement. In Ireland it means loved girl and gift from God. There are some days I like my name, but most days I despise it. Having such a common name means that you are often defined by the first letter of your last name or even your middle name. Anytime someone calls my name I turn around and half the time they aren't even talking to me, causing me embarrassment. I honestly prefer to be called Gracie, just because it is less common than ‘Grace’.
