I ran into someone today, who’s daughter’s name was [name]Izzy[/name]. They were Hispanic, does [name]Izzy[/name] stand for [name]Isabel[/name] or [name]Isabella[/name]? I wanted to ask, but thought it would be rude. I think [name]Izzy[/name] is kinda cute, but I would think it was a boy’s name. WDYT?

[name]Izzy[/name] stands for [name]Isabel[/name] or [name]Isabella[/name] most of the time. I would guess it’s a popular nickname, since, added together, [name]Isabel[/name], [name]Isabelle[/name], and [name]Isabella[/name] were given to more girls than [name]Emma[/name] last year. [name]Izzy[/name] could also stand for [name]Elizabeth[/name] or [name]Isadora[/name].

Good luck!

I am not naming my own child. I just had a boy two weeks ago lol. I was just wondering what [name]Izzy[/name] could stand for.

I know an [name]Izzy[/name] who’s name is [name]ISOBEL[/name]…

As they were Hispanic, it is a safe bet that it is a nn for [name]Isabella[/name], although it could also be [name]Isadora[/name]. I love it for [name]Isolde[/name], myself :slight_smile:

I agree those are cute names. I think [name]Izzy[/name] is a very cute nickname for any of those names. I ran into her again at church today, and brought it up again. I found out her name is [name]Isabella[/name]. [name]How[/name] cute.

It could also be a nn for [name]Isabeau[/name].

Oh, or [name]Isis[/name] or [name]Isolde[/name].

It could pretty much be a nickname for any name starting with -Is.
