One of my middle names is [name]Isabel[/name] and I have been dead set on using it for my little girl for as long as I can remember. One of the reasons I began loving it so much was that it was quite uncommon 15 years ago. Its popularity is devastating to me!
So what do you think? Stick with the name I love and face the possibility of several other [name]Isabel[/name]'s, [name]Isabella[/name]'s, [name]Bella[/name]'s, etc. in her class? Or use it as a middle name and select something more unique and not so common as her first name? I have been leaning towards the second option for a while, but I have been so set on [name]Isabel[/name] it is hard for me to even consider other possibilities. That said, I cannot imagine not using it as her first name. What a dilemma! Help!
