    Bless Their normal hearts… Name is KIND of generic even if lovely, True story ive held 2 Mia Graces Last year and heard of a third-Middle-name-Grace baby before december ended… Kinda like Grace is this decade’s Marie

    • Erinn says:

      It is a super common name, but it’s cute. I always am a fan of more traditional names that aren’t on trend. I don’t want to have a baby named the same thing as 4 other kids in their class.

    • SonjaMarmeladova says:

      I liked the name before, but it’s so common here ( 4th most popular) so I kind of stopped liking it. I love the name Grace.

    • Malificent says:

      It’s funny how name trends come and go. Grace wasn’t popular in the US until the last decade or so. I have a friend in her early 50s who is named after her mom’s best friend, and was not pleased about having an “old lady” name.

      My middle-aged self gets a good chuckle out of all of the little Emmas and Coras and Lillians running around. They’re lovely names — so I’m glad they’re back in circulation, but I still do a little mental double-take when I see little girls with my great-aunts’ names.

      • Jen34 says:

        Yes. All the old lady names are back in fashion. I have 2 aunts named Madeline, both in their 70′s. I have a great aunt Grace. Both names were popular Italian American names. My mom’s friend is Emily. Sophie and Olivia are also in there. I am just waiting for Mary to be popular again since just about every female on my Mom’s side has a Mary in her name.

    • Isa says:

      I just had a baby in December and her middle name is Grace. :)

    • Valois says:

      I don’t care about trends that that makes a name rather common.
      My name wasn’t in a Top 10-list and my mom chose it ’cause she didn’t want 5 Sophias in class. Now it’s one of the most popular ones. Who care? I don’t, trends come and go, I liked Emilia, Charlotte or Maya before and I will after other name are more popular :)

    • John Wayne Lives says:

      Omg 5000 Graces everywhere…
      but it’s a pretty little name

  2. Green Eggs and Ham says:

    Lovely name.

  3. blue marie says:

    They should have never given the dang show back to Leno, NBC royally screwed Conan and Leno deserves nothing less, the damn potato faced chin.

  4. Renee28 says:

    It’s a cute name but I know a couple girls named Mia and more Graces than I can count.

  5. QQ says:

    Also…someone should tell unfunny ass Jay that he is not the Pope or the Queen that needs to stay at his post until he dies or some such

    • ncmagnolia says:

      Seriously….that’s what that whiny 60 Minutes interview was all about, keeping his “throne”. UGH. Have always despised him after what he and NBC did to Conan. Jay- buh-BYE.

    • Reece says:

      + a f—ing million! I fully plan on watching The Tonight Show again when Jimmy takes over. Also you know, Lorne Michaels is taking over TTS producing and there’s no way he’s gonna oust Jimmy for Jay. So Jay can go have a seat on his little pouting stump and suck it.

  6. lunchcoma says:

    Yeah, I read about this over at Lainey. Apparently she finds it all too ordinary. Personally, I think there’s something to be said for having a relatively familiar name. Plus, it seems like both parents want to keep things as low key as possible given who they are, and I suspect Mia Tindall will blend in with the crowd a little more easily than a girl with a very memorable name.

  7. janie says:

    Cute name!! I didn’t realize Zara was so pretty. Congrats to them on the birth of their sweet baby.

  8. maria says:

    Mia Grace is sweet and simple. I remember way too many Sarah’s, Brittanys, and Jessica’s in high school back in 2004 so I hope Mia isn’t that popular

    • marina says:

      It is. My daughter has 14 girls in her second grade class and there are 2 Sophias and 2 Claires. There are several Olivias in the school and a bunch little sister Mias. Bellas are the older sisters.

      P.S. Who are these people?

      Also, someone with a weird name like Zara probably wanted to name her daughter a normal name. They don’t like it as much as you’d think. My daughter doesn’t like her “unique” name at all. Everyone else compliments us on it all the time.

      • Cricket says:

        Zara is Princess Anne’s daughter who is a silver medal Olympian from the London Olympics in equestrian. Her husband Mike Tindall is a retired pro rugby player. They were introduced by Prince Harry in a bar in Australia. Both are very normal and unpretentious. I’ve read that Prince Charles suggested the name Zara to Anne when she was born. Anne chose not to have either of her children have a royal title so there is no ‘princess’ included.

        Zara is well liked and very successful in her own right. Plus, she has a boxer dog so I’m a huge fan. She was quite the rebel of the royal family growing up with her tongue pierced and does not have the faux posh accent as sported by her cousins wife The Duchess of Cambridge,

        Oh, and she is one of Prince George’s godparents.

        LAK and FLORC I’m certain can provide more details but that the cliffs notes on them :)

      • John Wayne Lives says:

        This exactly. Im a preschool teacher. Here they all come rolling in..

  9. Observer says:

    I love the name Mia.

  10. Marigold says:

    My first thought was that it’s a little boring but you know what? Boring is great. Boring is great for a resume, it’s great for purposes of others knowing how to pronounce it and it’s great in that no one will ask how to spell it. I’m all for normal names being the reg. I don’t care how popular they are. In their house, she’ll be the only Mia Grace so who cares who else is named that?

  11. BeckyR says:

    Grace was a name you never heard after the 50′s until “Will and Grace” was on TV. I named my daughter Emily (she’s 40) after watching Bob Newhart and his wife was named Emily. Go figure. Pop culture does influence these things.

  12. Stephanie says:

    I actually love the name Zara!

  13. Stacy says:

    I don’t understand why people hate Jay Leno. NBC forced him out of his show, gave it to Conan, Conan failed, so they gave it back to Jay. Who can blame Leno for wanting to keep the job he loves.

    • SonjaMarmeladova says:

      I don’t really know much about Jay and Conan, but I watched Jimmy Fallon, and he is so lovely, but so not funny.

    • Drea says:

      It took Leno four years to win his time slot. Conan only got a few months.

      • kgg says:

        Exactly. And Conan’s lead-in was Jay’s terrible talk show, which basically cannibalized The Tonight Show. Jay got to build his audience on the heels of Friends, Seinfeld, ER — the types of ratings network shows will never see again. NBC promised Conan the gig years before he took it because they were terrified they were going to lose him to a competitor. Then when Conan was taking over The Tonight Show, they were terrified they’d lose Jay to a competitor. They tried to have it both ways and they lost.

    • Elle Kaye says:

      Jay Leno should never have had the tonight show hosting job, it should have gone to Letterman…that is why Letterman went to CBS. Carson was also upset that Leno got the job instead of Letterman. Leno then built upon Letterman’s own sketches. This is why Leno doesn’t garner a great deal of sympathy…he appears to stab his fellow comedians in the back in order to get ahead.

      Leno is funny, but he isn’t original. Late night needs that to keep it fresh.

      • Mari says:

        Leno is far from original. Whats very funny is listening to Howard Stern go off on him. Jay stole his “Jay Walking” skit from Howard and he stole Stuttering John Menendez from Howard. Jay totally cannibalizes other comedians work. His own jokes are sadly far from funny. My mother thinks he’s a riot. My mother still wishes “Murder She Wrote”, “Golden Girls” and the show with “Cousin Balky” were still on the air.

  14. Jayna says:

    What a beautiful name.

  15. Dee says:

    Mia is a sweet name, and it combines elements of both her parents’ names. In Hebrew, the meaning of the name Anne is “grace” so maybe a nod to the grandmother. When I heard it, it seemed to me that they put a lot of thought into choosing the name.

  16. hairy woman says:

    News of the day is Hamm took his Hamdo(n)g for a walk.

  17. Anastasia says:

    I knew a couple who tried for years to have a child. They finally conceived, and when they found out it was a girl, they named her Katherine Grace, because Katherine means “pure,” so her name literally means pure grace.

    We also named our daughter Katherine, but we paired it with a middle name that means noble. Pure and noble. In the mid-90s, we really seemed to be into name meanings, LOL.

    I like Grace and other “classic” girl names.

  18. The Original Mia says:

    Love the name!

    Jay can suck it. Jerk!

  19. Amanda_M87 says:

    I was hoping they’d have a son (I just think their features would look better on a boy). Congrats on the healthy baby though.

  20. MisJes says:

    Haha, Snoop and the firemen, classic. And I’m completely loving the fact that you included that story in the links today, because it’s actually Australia Day here!

    So, Happy Australia Day to my fellow Aussie Celebitches!
