"I love my name. It's pronounced ee-sah-ee and I have gotten quite a bit of compliments from others about how beautiful my name is. It's quite pleasant to receive compliments." Jul. 26, 2017:
"This is my son's middle name, but it is the name he goes by among family and responds to. We pronounce it Ee-sah-see, as that is how it is pronounced in Spanish. However, if I were to pronounce it in English, I would pronounce it I-zay. I find this name to sound pleasant and unique in both languages! It is a Biblical name as well; Isai is King David's father in the Spanish translation of the Bible. I really love it and am proud to have it as part of my son's name." Dec. 8, 2011:
"hi my husbands name is Isai, so is my sons name. Like the previous comment everyone says it different ways or before saying it they ask how do you pronounce the name? So husband gets frustrated because through out his like his had a problem with that. Overall he loves his name because its different." Nov. 4, 2010:
"there is certainly many variations of this word/name, though I think that the spelling Isai, is a Spanish variant of the Arabic word for Jesus or Jesse. Keep in mind that Arabic and Hebrew are both Semitic languages and also that Spanish is mostly Latin and Arabic (from the Moors). This is certainly not an English name though, as many websites report. My best guess though is that the English variant was derived from the Spanish version." Feb. 4, 2009:
"My grandson is named Isai. I like the Z sound, and the meaning, but its getting old telling people that its not Isaih...everyone wants to add the H. Makes for great nick names as a baby, we called him baby zay, or zay-bay...I also love the meaning of the name...its a special,special name to me" Apr. 20, 2008:
"My name's Isai. I was born out of the states and the person that wrote my birth certificate added a "y" (I am so pissed) so now almost nobody knows how to pronounce my name. Last year I received a call from my school and the lady said: "can i talk to hmm, urg, huh, emm y-s-a-i-" and I said "yes this y-s-a-i-" Those people messed up my name, but I love it. It means "God exists"" Dec. 27, 2005:

"My name is Isai it's pronounced ee-sah-ee mostly everyone I meet says it wrong the first times but they usually get the hang of it. My Seventh grade algebra teacher thought it was too hard to pronounce so he just called me Isaiah for the rest of the year. It doesn't really bother me I'm patient. So far I have never a met another Isai in my entire life." Sep. 7, 2010:
