About Gracie-maiGo back to names list
Double barrelled first names are a more modern creation. They are probably inspired by the double barrelled surnames frequently found in English speaking countries. The meaning of the name can be taken to be a mixture of its two parts theoretically. Gracie is a pet form of the feminine name Grace which is what we call a virtue name and is popular amongst Christian parents. Mai is a spelling variant of May which could be associated with the month or could be a pet form of the feminine name Mabel. This name would be perfect for a little girl born in May, where a little individuality is also desired.
