"1983 Isabella here. At around 2 or 3 I was being introduced to someone as Isabella, but my mom says I threw a fit and chanted "Bella, Bella, Bella!!" She doesn't know where I got it from, but it stuck. I was Bella in grade school and always introduced myself as Bella. In high school I had some friends call my Izzy. Most of my mother's side of the family calls me Isa. Even now it's kinda strange hearing someone calling me by my full name.
Growing up, I never met another Isabella. I went to camp one year and got very excited when I saw an Isabella on another door, the counselors ended up making a mistake when writing the signs. Now it's everywhere.
I kind of wish my mother went with the Polish spelling of Izabela, but she decided to go with the common American spelling." Sep. 7, 2019:

My name is Isabella,
I LOVE MY NAME :)
BUT... a lot of people say Isabel, when they first meet me or whatever, and I HATE IT,
it is a COMPLETELY different name.
(i dont really like the name isabel)
...which makes it WORSE.
I had one other girl called isabella in my year level, thats out of fifty girls..
I spell izzy; ISI but people misspell that..
umm, its a FANTASTIC nickname,
i was once called Bella,
so; izzy or bella... nickname wise, :)
i like it when friends/fam shorten it to "is",
problem is everytime i hear "is he" i think someones talking to me, :P
I RECCOMMEND IT, :)

"Well, my name is Isabella and I absolutly love it. I think it is a beautiful name that flows when you say it. I don't know many Isabella's, so it is surely unique.

"I named my daughter this in 2006. We thought it was such a pretty name and loved the meaning and origin. She is known as Issy which suits her as she is such a sociable happy toddler. We thought this name had such good choices for nicknames and she would be able to choose when we she was older how she wanted to be known, Unlike my name Jayne which I always wished i had a longer prettier name which I coudld have a nickname from." Oct. 26, 2008:

"I am proud to have been named Isabella back in 1978, when it was quite uncommon. I was called Bella as a child, but I far prefer Isabella and have introduced myself thus since I was 16 or 17. I HATE Izzy/Izzie- why spoil such a beautiful name as Isabella?" Dec. 26, 2007:

"people are way to aggressive if the have this name and that's on period sis" Nov. 20, 2019:
"Too common. Number one name in the US AND UK. It's a shame because it's a really, really nice name. But your kid should be distinguished in some fashion. When there are 5 kids in your class with the same name that year, you are going to have to work harder to be noticed, which is fine for some kids, but just not fair for others." Apr. 3, 2012:
"I laugh when someone says Isabella is unique and uncommon. I laugh very hard as this name and all its derivatives (Isobel, Isabel, Izabella...) is very very popular. It is the Jennifer of this decade!" Apr. 30, 2010:
"SOOO popular. It's an alright name, but you hear it absolutely everywhere and now I'm afraid that little Isabellas all over the country are going to start trying to emulate the "heroine" of the Twilight books - bad, bad idea. She's probably the worst role-model in the history of modern literature, just sayin'. This name is the Ashley/Brittany/Jessica of twenty years ago." Mar. 17, 2010:
"My name is Isabel, without the extra "la". I hate my name and wish it wasn't so princessy. I prefer names like Jaime, Layne, Jordan, Holly, and other names that aren't common and are less feminine. Also, if you do name your child that, call her Isabella, because Isabel is annoyingly spelt. Please at least give her a middle name and nickname Bella or Isa!!!" Dec. 13, 2008:
"My name is Isabeli. Everyone spell it Isabella. They are too different names." Jan. 21, 2006:

"my name is Isabella and I love it. My friends call me Izzy or Iz but my boyfriend calls me Bella. My dad calls me his little princess unlike my friend who calls me little witch cause of my obsession with Harry Potter . I like all of them. The name is so beautiful and it reminds me of princesses and fairytales. I love fantasy so i love the name 👸" Sep. 23, 2016:
"Its awesome :) my friends name is called Galo
so if you think isabella is a little wierd look at that :)" Oct. 12, 2015:
"My name is Isabela. Yes, spelled with only 1 "L" . I was borrowing books from the library one day and the librarian asked for my library card. She saw that my name was Isabela. She told me that it's a very pretty name and wished that her daughter's name was Isabella. People often spell it wrong. When I travel I have to avoid buying souvenirs with a name. If I really want one I just say, "Close enough"" Jan. 20, 2014:
"My 6 month old daughter's name is Isabella. I call her Bella for short. It's annoying that it's so popular, but I notice that everyone here who's actually named Isabella loves their name. So maybe there will be a few other Isabella's when she goes to kindy/school, but sound like they'll all be thanking their mums for their beautiful name. I wasn't going to give her a name I didn't love, just so people would think I was creative, she's the one who has to live with it, & nothing else was pretty enough for my little girl :)" Jul. 16, 2013:
"i love the name Isabella but i live in england and there are SOOO many isabelles/isabellas etc in my year at school, except ALL of them are shortened to izzy (but spelt different every time), as well as another isabella i know who is often called bella so i wouldnt call my kid that cos it is too common. but its still a lovely name :)" Oct. 6, 2011:
"My neice is named Isabella and she is 4 years old. A lot of people call her Bella, especially her friends in school. I gave her the nickname Bellz, so I always call her that. My siblings and Mother call her Bellz aswell as a cute nickname. :)" Sep. 10, 2011:
"It's alright, I guess. Just that an annoying girl from school ruined it for me." May. 18, 2011:
"Overall a pretty-sounding name. Personally, I find it a bit flowery and old-fashioned. Even though I know it's popular for girls, I associate it with older people." Feb. 14, 2011:
"hey my name is isabella and im getting tired of associating me with twilight... You know i used to think i was the only one with this name cause i could never find my name on anything but i still love it:D" Jan. 15, 2011:
"im okay with the name but the thing that bothers me are the nicknames. i like bella but that's it! and i hate when people call me isabel, it is a COMPLETELY different name. are people just too lazy to say the "la" at the end? i would consider naming my daughter after me though, it is pretty." Jul. 14, 2010:
"My name is Izabela and I'm from Poland in Europe ;) My friend say me Iza. Very girls name Iza. When i was 13 my name is bad for me ... now i like this name :) Pozdro dla Polakżw !! :P" May. 5, 2010:
"i really like the name isabella. although its a bit common its still really pretty" Dec. 8, 2009:
"I love the name Isabella. It's so beautiful and flows so nicely.
It is definitely a name I would consider if I ever had a little girl, although the fact that it's apparently so popular in the US worries me,
I live in England, and don't know of ANY Isabellas or Isabelles, although I met an Izzy once. But that's it. It's really not a popular name here, I hope it doesn't start becoming popular." Jun. 22, 2009:
"I plan on naming my kid Izabella...it's different...just like my name...which is also spelt differently then it should be.
There is nothing wrong with Z's if you spell out the name in cursive it looks more 'classy' than Isabella. It is personal preference...so you don't need to bad talk peoples names..." May. 27, 2009:
"I love this name and the way it's spelt I hate it when people spell it with a z it makes a beautiful name look cheap." May. 12, 2009:
"This is my cousins name. She is four. Its a nice name but way too common. I would never name my child that." Oct. 13, 2008:
"My 3 year old daughter is named Isabella Corrine. We call her Bella. Love it!" Apr. 2, 2008:
"Love the name! Too common for me to name my baby, but I think Izzy is a wicked cute name. You just have to be cute/quirky enough to pull it off." Nov. 24, 2007:
"I named my daughter Isabella and I love the name and so does she and all her friends. She is called 'Bella' by everyone at school and it's the one nickname that is actually as pretty as the full name. You can't be ugly with a name like Isabella.." Sep. 5, 2007:
are okay names
not my top choices, but maybe." May. 18, 2007:
"I also have an Isabella Joy born in 2003. Now that I'm pregnant with daughter #2, I hope we can find another beautiful name like Isabella." Apr. 12, 2007:
