Though Isabella (a variation of Elizabeth -- kind of surprising, right?) is one of the most popular names in America, with equally trendy nicknames like Ella, Ellie, and Bella, it’s also one of the most classic. Since the twelfth century, there have been so many Queen Isabellas that Wikipedia has an entire page devoted to them. When Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman named their daughter Isabella in 1992, the name didn’t even crack the top 100…and that was way up from mid-century, when it dropped off the charts entirely. Since then it’s been steadily rising, with major jumps throughout the 2000s and a peak position -- at least for now -- in the top five. Isabella, you are so back.
