    Isabella? Too trendy?

    Isabella has always been my favorite girls name since I was little and I also like that it is a variation of Elizabeth, my mother and grandmother's name. DH and I are expecting our first child (don't know gender yet) and when I was going over names with him his favorite Isabella as well. Our major concern with the name is how popular it is! I don't generally mind popular names i.e. other names we are considering include Andrew and Alexander (for a boy) and Caroline, Elizabeth and Charlotte (for girls). I'm just worried that Isabella will appear trendy to others and less of a classic than these names and will sound dated in the future? Any input would be much appreciated!

    Full name would most likely be Isabella Katherine Lu.

    Thanks!!

    I adore the name Isabella, but Twilight forever ruined it for me. That being said, if you and your DH love it, use it.

    If you love it, use it, though I'd never use it, primarily because of the popularity (I also tend to prefer Isabel or Isadora). If honoring Elizabeth is the highest concern, consider Elizabelle.
