Baby Isabella will be here soon and we need a nickname (so far we really like Izzy and my girls/DH have been calling my preggo belly the "Isa-belly", lol!)

Not sure what happened to my poll... Here are our favorites:


Any other suggestions?

I don't see a poll.

I like the nicknames Isa, Bella, and Belle. Izzy is cute, but probably best on a baby or young child.

I like Izzy best for the pronunciation like "iz-a-bell-ah"
I do,however, really love Isa/Issa "ee-sah" with the "ee-sah-bell-ah" prn.

For a cutesy nn, we use Bellaboo.

For real nns, sometimes it's just best to discover the baby's personality to see which nn will fit her best.

(There is also Elle, Ellie, and Isabel for nns.)
Thank-you GraysMama for my beautiful siggy!

I really feel like each of the common nn's for Isabella have such differing personalities, that you are probably going to want to wait and just see what fits when you meet her! They are all cute

My DD is Isabel, she gets called Izzie, Isa, and Bell-bell (how she pronounces her name, LOL).

I agree that she will most likely impact whichever nn you use ... but my favorites are Elle / Ella / Ellie.

I like Bella best but I agree nicknames just tend to come naturally after the baby arrives, that's why I like names with many nn options! When Georgia was first born we called her Gia but now she is Gigi all the way!

Bella is my favorite But, like a few said.. sometimes nicknames kinda come naturally after they're born, certain ones just seem to fit your own particular child more.

I agree that you should just wait to meet her! My nephew was born and we were convinced that he wouldn't have a nickname, but when he was born we started calling him Hunter Bear and Hunt Man. It just suited him. When she is born, her personality will create her own nickname.

Well my favorite is Bella, but I might be biased a bit. My daughter's name is Isabella and goes by Bella all the time.. hehe

Thank you *Kiliki* for my wonderful siggy!
