the word
grace


Explanation:
In the sentence of "The child is full of grace", the meaning of "grace" is " charm politeness in attitude and character towards a person or persons". The Korean pronunciation is "yezurl" in English similarly. I'll give you an example. "When I had a date with my wife for the first time before getting married, I was full of grace to hide my liberal manners." Is this good enough for you? Thanks.

disagree  lazyduck: Nope, yezurl cannot be a girl's name. Full of grace...is more of a religious expression, therefore Eun-Hye is more appropriate.

  -> I said 음혜 because the title says that it is a female name. Also 'full of grace' is more like "은총이 가득하신" in Catholic rosary. Therefore, 은혜 is not far from it.

disagree  lazyduck: can you use 기품 as a (female) baby name? Furthermore, I rarely saw the situation where full of grace was used as "기품이 있는".
