I is for ISABELLE

I refer to my daughter as "the daughter" or "my daughter" a lot on my blog.  But, after thinking about it for awhile, I decided it's time to reveal her name:

ISABELLE

I don't think I'll post any pictures of her for privacy reasons, but I don't think there is much harm in people only knowing her name.

I've always loved the name Isabelle.  Long before I was married, I knew if I ever had a daughter I would name her Isabelle.  Luckily for me, Dustin also had a liking for the name, so whenever we discussed baby names, Isabelle was always on the top of our list.

As far as nicknames go, there is only one that is off limits:  Izzy.  I can't stand the name Izzy!  Blah.  Other than that, we're pretty open.  We call her Belle, Bells and, our favorite, Bellie.  Sometimes I call her Isa, much to Dustin's dismay.  :)

I really hope as Isabelle grows older, she loves her name.  I wanted to make sure I gave her a strong name, one that she could grow into and that would be a good fit no matter her age.

  2. Isabelle is a beautiful name! My oldest went through a phase where she wanted me to call her by another name. I told her I wouldn't because it wasn't the name I gave her. It died quickly, and she decided her name was better after all.

  4. Isabelle is a gorgeous name, and a name I had always wanted for one of my daughters. Thankfully, I had boys, since both my cousin and my good friend had babies and named them Isabelle. And I agree - Izzy is an awful nickname for such a beautiful full name.

  7. Isabelle is a beautiful name! When we named our daughter, I wanted something that could be shortened to something cute and girly, but also something that's grown up and professional when she becomes a doctor or a lawyer! :)
