So in another post another mom said her twin daughters were annabella and isabella. which is fine with me, two different names and all that. My question is this, how many people have named their babies with the intention of calling them a nick name ex: isabella called bella. My thoughts have always been, name the child what you intend to call them. Someone who used to come to my daycare was having a little boy, they named him John but will call him Jack. that's just odd to me, just name the kid jack (i know, john f kennedy was jack) or even isabella. if you are planning on calling her bella, why not just name them bella? is that wierd of me?
