The popularity of 'Grace' as a baby name is graphed here.

As for Grace's parents, 'Carmine' started out strong in the 20th century, topping out at #377 in 1912.  The peak years of Italian immigration to the U.S. were from 1903 to 1914.  He attempted an unsuccessful comeback in the previous decade.  

'Rosaria', on the other hand, cracked the top 1000 just once.
