Gracie

Gracie is a nickname for Grace which comes from Latin gratia meaning “favor, kindness” and usually referring to qualities of elegance, pleasantness, charm, kindness, courteousness, and attractiveness. It derives from grātus (pleasing, acceptable, agreeable) via PIE *gʷerH- (to favor, approve; praise). I’ve also seen it listed as having originally been associated with Germanic element gris meaning “gray” though it was later eclipsed with the Latin concept of grace.

Gracie is also a surname, originating as a variant of Grace.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
