Grace

The name Grace in Ireland is of Norman origin and is derived from the name 'le Gras' which first appeared in the country during the twelfth century. The main settlement of the native Gaelic Gras Sept was in County Kilkenny where there is still a good representation of descendants who bear this name.

Origen: Normando, Irlandés. The surname Grace is generally thought to derive from the Old French word "grace," which means "charm" or "pleasantness." In some instances, it may have evolved from the Old French word "gros," which means "great," or "large." In either instance, the name was a nickname which evolved into a surname. First found in Buckinghamshire, where they were descended from a Norman knight from Le Gras in Normandy, who arrived in England with the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D.

Variantes: Grace, Grase y otros.

Motto Translated: On Grace, depend.
