grace

Origin: Latin

Meaning: Charm

Grace is the most popular of all the virtue names, with good reason -- it’s pretty, simple, strong, and fits right in with today’s grandma-names-are-back trend. Its first peak was at number 13 in the 1880s and its next -- after a long trip down and back up -- was 13 in 2003. It was first used as a given name by the Puritans in the late sixteenth century but now is popular among the slightly more famous set -- Lance Armstrong, Christy Turlington, and tons more stars have little Graces of their own.

Current U.S. popularity rank: 2010: 21
