Baby Names

Thoughts on Gracelyn?

I love the name Grace for our baby girl, but it's so popular. So what do you think about Gracelyn? Her middle name would be Elizabeth. So Gracelyn Elizabeth.

    Grace > Gracelyn.

    Gracelyn seems trendy and will be dated IMO.  Also it sounds like Graceland to me. Which then I think about Elvis and it just isn't good.  Grace is classic.

  • My first thought is Graceland and Elvis.
  • I love Grace, but not a fan of Gracelyn.  It reminds me of Graceland.

  • Blech. I really don't like it. It just sounds like a smoosh name. I don't get the trend of tacking -lyn on to every name. That and I just hear Graceland.

    Grace is fine.

  • I don't like it at all. Reminds me of Graceland. And with all the kids running around named Grace, Gray, and Grayson and all other variations, I don't think it stands out either. If you want something not popular, then choose a different name, imo. Otherwise stick with Grace- it's a lovely name.

  • It's becoming trendy to stick a -lyn on whatever and call it a name.  Grace is timeless; Grace will sound dated to the 2010s in a few decades.

  • It makes me think of Graceland too. I'd find a different name if you aren't sold on Grace.

  • I think Grace sounds better than Gracelyn.

    Grace Elizabeth is classic and lovely.

  • Terrible. Just terrible. I hear Graceland like Elvis.

    Grace Elizabeth is beautiful and classic. I wouldn't worry about popularity

  • Every time I hear the name Gracelyn I think Graceland. I like the name I just can't get myself to stop thinking of Elvis's mansion.
  • Trendy blah. Grace is nice on its own without slapping a trendy suffix on it that will only serve to make the name sound incredibly dated in 20 years.

    And yes, Graceland. I started humming Paul Simon.

  • I have a friend whose DD is named Gracelyn and she is adorable, so I have good associations with it in that regard. But I do think it looks trendy and don't think it will age particularly well.

  • It sounds a bit made up, and it makes me think of Graceland. Gracelyn Elizabeth is also a bit of a mouthful, sorry

    I think its sort of a mouthful. I know a little girl, er...I guess shes a teenager now!- named Gracen. Maybe consider that if you want something a little different?

    This. It just seems unnecessary! Grace is a beautiful, timeless, classic name and the trendiness of the lyn and the blatant Elvis Graceland association robs it of its beauty. I have grace on my list for sure!
