Tracy

Tracy f, formerly m
English: transferred use of the surname, which is derived from a Norman baronial name from places in France called Tracy ‘place of Thracius’. In former times, Tracy was occasionally used as a male given name, as were the surnames of other English noble families. Later, it was also used as a female name, generally being taken as a pet form of THERESA (SEE Theresa). In recent years, it has become an immensely popular female name. A strong influence was the character of Tracy Lord, played by Grace Kelly in the film High Society (1956).
Variants: Tracey, Tracie f.
