    I guess the point might be to give your child an easy-to-like nickname with a more special and perhaps difficult formal name to fall back on, and that's fine. But sometimes it seems as if parents are picking these distinctive names and then backing away from them by using a more ordinary nickname.
    Second all of that.

    And if you have a Bella already, it's too cutesy.
