Last name origins & meanings:
- English: nickname from Middle English, Old French grace
‘charm’, ‘pleasantness’ (Latin gratia).
- English: from the female
personal name Grace, which was popular in the Middle Ages. This
seems in the first instance to have been from a Germanic element
grīs ‘gray’ (see Grice 1), but was soon associated by
folk etymology with the Latin word meaning ‘charm’.
