I just discovered this site and am hoping you can help with a dilemma I’m having.
My partner loves the name [name]Isabelle[/name] and really, REALLY wants to use it for our baby girl. I like the sound of the name very much, too, but I’m really turned off by the current popularity of [name]Isabelle[/name]/[name]Isabella[/name]. I know the annoyance of growing up with a hugely popular name and I don’t want to do the same thing to my daughter.
I’ve been talking to him more about the name [name]Isabelle[/name], and it turns out that the main thing he likes about it is the potential for the nickname [name]Izzy[/name]. He wants a little [name]Izzy[/name], and I think it’s cute and spunky, too. I just don’t want it as the given name.
Now I’m hoping that if I can find another name that can use [name]Izzy[/name] as a nickname, I can get him off of the [name]Isabelle[/name] fixation and get him thinking about other possible names. The only other thing I’ve come up with so far is [name]Elizabeth[/name], and that’s also a bit too popular for me. (Oh, and [name]Isadora[/name], but that’s a bit too much of a mouthful with our last name, which starts with a D).
So, any suggestions for “[name]Izzy[/name]” names?
