Gracious, lovely






Emily P. Contributor

Grace is a paw-fect dog name, especially if your pup has the elegance of a gazelle or the clumsiness of a baby giraffe. It's a nod to Grace Kelly, the epitome of poise and elegance. Plus, it's a gentle reminder of the grace we all need when we find a chewed-up shoe or a surprise on the carpet. Historically, Grace was a virtue name in the Puritan tradition, symbolizing divine favor. So, if your dog seems heaven-sent (or needs divine intervention for her antics), Grace is a fitting, and slightly ironic, choice.
