    I know a Grace & she's a bit daggy. I also know of a bub with Grace as one of her middle names & thought it sounded a bit out if place. I personally don't like the name. I also think it sounds too old for a baby, but that's not the reason I don't like it. I prefer Faith, which is based on a similar concept & sounds similar, but is more modern (IMO).

    I've known a few Kates (or Cates) short for Katherine/Katharine or Catharine/Catherine. I've never met a Kate/Cate I didn't like. I think it's a young/fresh/vibrant name & very versatile e.g. she could go by Katie/Catie as a bub/young child, Kate/Cate &/or full name as a teen/adult.

    My favourite of the names you listed is Leah. I went to school with a couple of Leahs, but it doesn't seem as popular now.

    In my opinion Kate is a classic name that evokes an elegance and sophistication. And it also can be cute and personable. It is a beautiful name but I think I would go with a longer version like Katelyn or Katerina and have Kate for short.

    I also like Grace but prefer Gracie for a little girl.

    I know three graces and too many Kate's to count (I work with kids and schools though). I haven't met any Leah's that are primary school age, it is a very pretty name!

    I would pick Leah. That was on our list it's not all that common either

    I went to school with a Leah Grace. I think I like the sound of the name Leah Kate though...
    Leah is an interesting name. It is pretty, yet without being overly feminine, it is used here and there but throughout the generations it never becomes a "popular" name as such. I have even seen it been tweaked meeting a Lia recently.
    Kate follows the same lead as Leah, a pretty name, whereas Grace shouts femininity and "Grace Kelly" to me if you know what I mean.
    All are great names, yet entirely different. Maybe take all of them and wait to meet your little girl? We were going to call our son Kade until he was born. Even then he looked much too cheeky to be a Kade so we ended up naming him something entirely different!

    I like all of them! Our DD's middle name is Grace.

    Recently starting to like the idea of just Kate for another DD. I think it's a great name

    I love all your names but am a bit biased towards Grace as it's my DDs name There are heaps of Grace's in my area though, something I didn't know until I joined a mummy's exercise group. I wouldn't change it for the world though, she is very definitely my little Gracie!
