  • "My 15 year old son's name is Isaac. I've always loved the biblical names. I knew even at a young age that if I ever had a son I would name him Isaac. In 1994 when my son was born, the name was so uncommon. Now every time I turn around, there seems to a tiny toddler running around named Isaac. I chose the name for my son not just because of its biblical origins, but because it is also a strong and unique name and seems to suit his personality just fine!! AND it is a name that it difficult to turn into a nickname. The Lord blessed me with three sons. My two other boys are named Isaiah and Israel. And yes, I find that Isaac is a name that nobody knows how to spell. I HATE the fact that it is now so trendy. Well, my son says he likes his name. I wouldn't have named him anything else. It is such a beautiful name." Nov. 15, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "In 1990 Isaac was unheard of except maybe an old man would be named it. I named my son Isaac because of the story in the Bible. It means Promised son and laughter. because Sarah laughed when the angel told Abraham she would have a son in her old age. She was incredulous. But she did have that miracle child. My son has kept me laughing for 18 years." Apr. 16, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I name my son Isaac back in 1995 because it was classic but not over used; however, the name Isaac has hit mainstream as with all my children's names. Go figure! At any rate. I love Isaac!" Mar. 22, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "It is funny that it should mean laughter because out of my four sons he is the happiest little fellow. People always comment on how cheerful he is and with his curls, chubby cheeks and dimples he lookes just like a cherub! He is only 3 but I think Isaac is just one of those gorgeous names that will suit little ones and handsome grown men alike!" Nov. 27, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Isaac. People often spell it wrongly, e.g. Issac, Isacc, Isaic, Isaiah. I have also been called Eric and Ivan by people who don't know me well, e.g. new colleagues at work. I had uncles (now deceased)on my father's and my mother's side called Isaac and my mother's father was called Isaac. I named my son Gareth Isaac." Apr. 6, 2006: Report as inappropriate
