    Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha

    Kerry Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha welcomed their daughter on April 21. What do you think of the name? Normally, I'm not a fan of Isabelle, but with Asomugha, I think Isabelle sounds really nice.

    According to BtN Amarachi means "God's grace" in Igbo.

    Wishful: Genevie Nadine - Edith Isobel - Jethro -

    I think it was good to pick a more mainstream/easy name with such a hard last name. I love Isabella and Isabelle but I wouldn't use them because of popularity. I think the middle name's meaning is really pretty.

    I think it's a gorgeous choice. Asomugha is a difficult last name to work with in the States, and the very familiar but beautiful Isabelle is the perfect first name for it. And of course Amarachi flawlessly blends Dad's heritage into the name.

    I know it's popular, but I think it's a very pretty name.

    It's gorgeous - just as I had expected. It sounds and looks so beautiful. One of my favourite celebrity baby names. Great job, Kerry and Nnamdi, I applaud you on your naming skills. Re. Isabella/Isabelle's popularity: to this day I fail to see how popularity can make a name even remotely unappealing.
