I think Bella is the most beautiful name. I cant wait to have a daughter'so I can name her that. I have searched for so long to find a name that flows with various middle names and searched just to find a name that is pretty and I can not find anything better than Bella.

01/01/2024 14:53:10

I love this name. I am pregant, and am stronly thinking about using this name for a girl. I know many people will associate this name with twilight, but I really don't care. I thought of this name when I was first pregnant 2015. (I had a boy) The Twilight books hadn't even come out yet. I am Italian and Irish. Our kids have Irish names, and I would love to give my next child an italian name. I find this name'simple and beautiful.

Ive always Loved the name Isabella!! My brother bought a puppy and named her Bella. Hes stationed in Iraq so Ill be taking care of her for the next few years. I really wanted to name my first daughter Isabella, then my second daughter Julia. Now I don't think i will! :( She'll prob think I named her after the dog haha.

08/18/2023 02:19:08

I have a daughter called Bella who is 6 months. Before she was born we were going to call her Isabella but when she came out she was so beautiful, we thought we couldnt call her anything but Bella.

08/11/2023 10:08:58

My husbands name is Beau, which means beautiful or hansom, and we are planning on calling our baby (if It's a girl) Bella which also means beautiful.

08/06/2023 16:07:14

This is the most popular of many names that all rhyme! I agree It's wonderful sounding, but the craze is getting out of control. As someone who is around baby names a lot, I just wanted to point this out to anyone who plans to use this name because It's "so unique". In about 5 years elementary school's role call is going to Aiden, Braydon, Caiden, Hayden, Jayden, Graydon, Zaydon.

07/25/2023 02:35:26

When I have a child, I'm going to name her Bella, Paige, or Brandi.

07/21/2023 16:18:06

My name is Bela. Yep that's spelled right. Bela with only one L. But I love it like that. So many people have the name Bella. But mine is Bela which is unique and different. I know It'sounds the'same but when I tell people how to spell they always think It's cool and they remember me because of my unique name!

07/09/2023 07:10:48

I gave birth to my daughter in August of this year. After watching Twilight, I really liked the name Bella, plus I thought it went well with Leigh as a middle name. When I found out that the meaning was "beatiful", I just loved it even more. I was really worried that people would associate me as being some kind of " twilight fanatic" because I named her that. But I eventually just realized, the twilight craze will be over eventually, and I'll still love the name.

07/07/2023 19:37:10

My name is Bella and i hate when'they start comparing me to Bella from twilight. Because Bella in Spanish means beautiful and also sounds a lot better. in English Bella sounds all dirty. I'm Mexican and personally i think you should have a Lil Hispanic in you to have this name. ooh AND BELLA from twilight is not how you pronounce it .

07/05/2023 23:14:32

I love the name Bella Grace its such a beautiful name! I want to name my little girl Bella Jade.

07/05/2023 20:53:28

I love the name Bella. Were TTC and Im hoping when I do get pregnant its a girl so I can name he Bella.

07/04/2023 19:37:00

I love the name Bella, It's so classic and beautiful! My name is Isabel, do you think I could use Bella as a nickname❀️ It's too late for me to have people start calling me that now but maybe when I go to college.(:

06/26/2023 23:49:18

Im pregnant and naming my daughter bella because im italian and it means beautiful in latin and italian plus It's unique and pretty..nothing to do with twilight! lol

06/17/2023 10:35:18

I just bought a puppy last night and named her Bella! I think it is a beautiful name and it means beautiful in Italin.

05/27/2023 10:34:08

My beautiful little girl's name is Anabelle, and we call her Bella cause her Italian g-grandmother passed away when we were prego with her and she always called the grandkids Bella. I love the name and it fits her'so well, she looks just like a Bella. I love that'she can use either name and Anabelle is more unique and means "graceful and beautiful."

05/21/2023 14:40:40

love it love it love it! how could a little girl not like her name when it means beautiful❀️!

05/08/2023 15:26:58

the name came to me as clear as day: bella joye... that she will emulate and exude God's beautiful joye 2 those who are n need of his love and freedom and Joye n their live. so, it is meant to be together, never apart... as a whole: Bella Joye. the "e" on the end of joye is their because my moms name was Joye. (originated by God, spoken to me, tes, to give to bella joye) she has been bella joye sice the day she was conceived... anyone having this name will be blessed, but anyone who comes in contact with the real bella joye, who has just snuck downstairs at 12:26 am, will b truly blessed and will b touched by god from the flash of a smile that she so freely gives. she truly is God's Beautiful Joy!!!

05/01/2023 19:45:12

My daugthe's name is Isabella Grace, but we have always called her Bella. I love this name and so does everyone I'meet, although the name is now getting extreamly popular.

04/23/2023 18:40:06

i personally think that Bella in all It's many versions is a truly wonderful name It's short and simple yet beautiful and classy! the fact that the Bella in twilight is named that is i beli've highly symbolic, probably referring to the Latin and Italian translation.

04/10/2023 22:58:00

Bella sounds like a great name - if You're about 98 years old. I would never give my daughter a name that is on the top of the list for dog names!

04/01/2023 22:57:30


03/29/2023 08:33:18

When I have a daughter I will name her Allyssa and her nick-name will be Ally!

02/17/2023 18:07:06

I named my daughter Bella in 2015. It was a family name and way before Twilight became popular. But she does love the fact that'she can find things with her name on them!

02/16/2023 00:05:32

My daughter's name is Bella. Its never misspell it or mispronounce it. We think it is a "beautiful" name and It'seems like everyone who hears it feels the'same way!

01/25/2023 07:19:16

01/21/2023 23:40:38

My Baby Girl's name is Bella Jaime. I love her name and think it fits her beautiful little. Its just Bella not Isabella or Gabriella lol. People often ask about if I got her name from Twilight eww no!

01/19/2023 13:11:36

My name is Annabella,Bella for short, named after my Italian grandma I had no idea how common my name truly was in all honesty I love my name. It rolls off the tongue and it is common but at least I don't have a crazy name, I would much rather have a name like Kendall or Bella then something like Rosina or Divaldi that's just weird people in all honesty don't like unique names on the'selves that's why most people change their unique names to something more basic like mine once a bella always a bella

12/31/2022 14:15:12

i love it except i think the names too informal so ive been'trying to think of other names with bella in it, no luck so far.

12/30/2022 15:37:26

My name is Bella my parents chose this name for me because I come from Italian heritage I love my name!!

12/10/2022 17:28:00

Pretty name. Just hope the child lives up to it. An ugly Bella is a walking oxymoron and that's never a good thing for a child.

11/06/2022 13:48:38

The name BETHANY is okay for a girl, It's very female and playful. But the variant BETHAN (minus the "y" at the end) is just plain awful!

10/30/2022 00:11:14

I love the idea of Belle or Bella for short if i have a girl im thinking of naming her Briella so i can call her belle too

10/08/2022 14:45:48

My grandmother's name was Bella, which I think is unusual for a woman of Eastern Eurpoean Jewish descent.

09/25/2022 17:00:16

I have had the name "Bella" picked out for about 12 years now...I'met a "Bell" in college, who was the most beautiful girl, smart and very outgoing, I knew right then someday I would have a "bell." I had a son 3 years ago and now am 23 weeks pregnant with our little "Bella" although so upset b/c of Twilight! I see "Bella" being as common as "Ava" or "Emma" was years back. I still am sticking with the name regardless!

09/08/2022 11:12:32

im 22 weeks pregnant,and only just thought of the name!!! i think its absolutely gorgeous! so pretty for a little girl,cant wait to have my owl little "bella"

09/07/2022 11:06:36

How does Bella Grace sound❀️ I am due August 4th and if I have a girl I want to name her Bella Grace❀️ I love the name Bella but I am having trouble finding a middle name, can you guys please help me❀️

09/03/2022 03:09:18

My name isn't Bella. But I wish it was. It also means beautiful in Latin, Italian, and Spanish. Those three countries are also it's orgin.

09/01/2022 06:19:12

My Granddaughter is named Bella Rae and I'm a very proud to say i love her name. I don't ask for people's advice about baby names because as you can see not all have the'same opinion so hey guess what all negative people who says you have a great name .... just saying

07/22/2022 10:21:18

It's a nice name, Isn't it❀️ I can say it because my name is Bella, too. But sometimes many persons hurt me, 'cuz they say that the name "BELLA" is dogname...But i thought It's a great name.

05/21/2022 22:27:36

I personally think bella is an awful name. Something youd name a horse or a cow. And even if its just a barnyard animals name and not your childs its still pretty bad. Isabella annabella if your latin or italian is much prettier. I know a father of a bella the mom named the girl without his consent. He detests the name never calls her the name. And the daughter'since age 3 hates her name always wants to be called something else.

05/18/2022 11:11:42

My full name is Annabel.. but I was never an Annie or Anna for short cos it just didnt suit me.. everyone i know calls me Bella, it just sort of 'happened' lol.. tbh, i dont really like Annabel, so i get well annoyed when people call me that now.. im Bella .. Bella Rose (thats my middle name) - i love itt!

03/29/2022 03:23:42

Bella is the prettiest name ever!! when i hear the name Bella i think of Bella from twilight the book and movie. i would name my baby girl that!

03/17/2022 01:20:24

This name is ANCIENT. As in Morgan La Fey. Sounds mythological and i suppose you'd have to be very special to deserve it and not sound ridiculous.

02/08/2022 03:37:12

My daughter was born on September 9th, 2021 and her name is Bella. Not Isabella or Anabella...JUST BELLA! I love her name'so much. It fits her perfectly since she is simply beautiful! I wanted to name her what I would call her, so even'though Isabella is a great name it wasn't for me since I knew she would end up with a nickname and I didn't want it to be Izzy. LOL! I have had a few people ask if she was named after the movie Twilight, but it doesn't bother me since I know she wasn't. Her middle name is Avery, so she has a VERY original name. I love her and her name and I am so happy I went with it =) My beautiful Bella Avery <3

01/16/2022 12:06:36

Bella is a beautiful name and goes great with anything. i lovve the fact that my best friends name is bella!!! ohh and by the way even if people think of twilght when'they hear bella.. if the name was jacey then it would be the'same way!

01/06/2022 15:07:30

im a bit annoyed actually, i really like the name isabella, and im writing a book, isabella was going to be the main character (bella for short) and then'twilight came out.. and now i cant use it! its one of those things that once a book hits the bestseller list like twilight has, to use the'same name is just silly if you want your book to be unique. its killing me coz its hard to find another name that'suits a character! nevertheless, its a beautiful name

10/30/2021 13:51:00

At least 53 dead, dozens injured in truck crash in south Mexico, authorities say; one of worst-ever death tolls for migrants

10/03/2021 22:15:54

09/23/2021 01:29:24

I much preffer the Isi part - so nice - bella is ok - but a bit like Bella Pasta!!

08/27/2021 01:40:12

I went on a trip and came home yesterday and was surprised with a new kitten. she was beautiful. so we decided to call her Bella. It's perfect for her.

08/19/2021 05:10:48

Actually in Twilight, Bella's first name is Isabella. But Bella is still a nice name.

07/05/2021 21:57:00

My cousin has a daughter named Isabella and we call her Bella. I'm also pregnant and if it's a girl I'm naming her Gia Bella

07/05/2021 16:27:36

My name is Bella and just that. No Isabella or anything. I kinda liked my name cuase it was uncommon but ever'since twilight everytime someone says 'bella' i turn around and they say 'no not you stupid the girl from twilight' or something like that. Its a nice name to have but now people say 'yeah right thats not your name.' 'is that'short for isabella.' I wish I could change my name becuase now a bunch of twilight fans are going to make it the most popular name ever. Im an unusual person therefore I need a name to match but it wont be that way for long.
