Origin of last name

GRACE : 1: English: nickname from Old French cras gras ‘fat big’ (from Latin crassus Anglo-Latin grassus).2: English: topographic name from Middle English gras ‘grass pasture’ (Old English græs) for someone who lived near an area of grassland.3: Scottish: in some instances probably a variant of Gracey.4: English: occasionally perhaps from the rare Middle English female personal name Grace. This seems in the first instance to have been from an ancient Germanic element grīs ‘gray’ (see Grice) but was soon associated by folk etymology with the Latin word meaning ‘charm’. See Gracey.5: English: occasionally perhaps a nickname from Middle English (Old French) grace ‘grace favor good will’ also ‘goodness beauty charm’ (from Latin gratia) but evidence to confirm this possibility is lacking.
