"i LOVE this name, trying to convince my husband into it... it is so handsome and yet really dreamy. but the main reason why I want to name my son Isaiah is because Mr. Edwards from the "Little House on the Prairie" series has Isaiah as a first name : )" May. 23, 2010:
"This is a very strong name. I have also been reading a lot out of the book of Isaiah and feel so loved and encouraged by what God has given us in this book. We are having our third baby,a nd the youngest will be just 18 months apart. Our youngest now is Ezra. If the next is a boy, Ezra and Isaiah wil go together really nicely" Apr. 2, 2010:
"We named our son Isaiah in 1985, before it was as popular as it seems to be getting now. When people get it wrong, it's usually "Isaac." Neither my husband or I had ever known anyone named Isaiah before this, but we liked the meaning of it and, for both of us, Isaiah was one of our favourite books in the Bible, with its beautiful writing; also, as with its 66 chapters it has been linked as representing the 66 books of the Bible.
We did meet one older couple who told us they used to know an Isaiah, but the husband warned us, "He'll hate you for this when he grows up." (His wife disagreed, though.) I have since then met or heard of two or three Isaiahs among people we know--at least one of these was a little girl." Jan. 26, 2009:

"My 13 year old son is named Isaiah. In 1996, this name was still uncommon. It is a strong, classic, biblical name that has such a beautiful meaning--"the Lord is my salvation." It was a toss up between Isaiah and Elijah when he was born. I know that the name Isaiah is starting to gain some popularity, and I can't stand the thought! Oh well, I'm glad I chose this name for my son and encourage others to do so as well." Nov. 15, 2009:
