"My name is Isabelle Grace and the name Isabelle is pretty good. It just sometimes gets on my nerves when people call me Isabella or Elizabeth. Sometimes people call me Ellie. That's about it. If I put my whole experience with the name I could make a whole website of it... BYE" Jul. 6, 2015:

"I named my daughter Isabelle and started out calling her Izzy for short. Then our 3 yr old couldn't say the first half so she called her Belle and it stuck. She NOW goes by Belle Honey because that's what I would always say to her, "Come here, Belle, honey." and she heard it so much she thinks that is her actual name. lol. We think it's adorable. We do hear Isabella all of the time, but we don't mind because she is going to get it all of her life so she better get used to it now! I had no idea it was so popular, or I wouldn't have named her that. I wanted my girls to have old fashioned names that everyone would have heard so that don't say "where did you come up with THAT?", but also no very common. My 3 yr old is named Gwendilyn."

"My daughters name is Isabelle Grace. I fell in love with that name not knowing anyone named Isabelle myself. I didn't want her to be called Izzy because I didn't like it and always heard Greys Anatomy comments on it so I added the elle so people would for short call her elle...no one ever says though not even myself. I can't imagine calling her anything other than Isabelle, Iz, or Izzy. I love the name still but hate that it is becoming more popular and that people often say ISABELLA it is not an A at the end people! ARg! haha!" Oct. 11, 2009:
