1. Gender: Feminine
  2. Origin: Latin
  3. Meaning: Possibly derived from the Latin word graecia, which means “greece.” This was the cognomen of Pomponia Graecina. It was also the name of an early Christian martyr, (also martyred under Diocletian), of whom very little is known. She has a shrine dedicated to her in Volterra, Italy, a city which plays a role in the popular Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyers.
  4. The name would make a nice alternative for the overused Grace. The nickname Grey would also be cool!
