What do you think?

BlueDragonfly Thu 07-Aug-08 11:57:19

i like it BUT would pronounce it eye-Zack which would get on my nerves telling everyone!

tokentotty Thu 07-Aug-08 11:58:52

Are there other pronunciations ?

nancy75 Thu 07-Aug-08 11:59:21

Love it, and love Ike, the traditional American nickname for Isaac.

Too many Old Testament names around.

electra Thu 07-Aug-08 12:35:05

Agree with moondog. Your choice though...

misdee Thu 07-Aug-08 12:36:46

i love it.

dd2,3 and soon to be dd4 would've been isaac.

but it is becoming quite popular now, wasnt 6years ago when dd2 was due. so that does put me off a bit.

Jackstini Thu 07-Aug-08 12:38:30

Like it a lot, although depends on your surname too

Sonnet Thu 07-Aug-08 12:38:51

My dd2 would have been isaac ( not heard of many 8 years ago)
I love it

bikerunski Thu 07-Aug-08 12:53:39

moondog Thu 07-Aug-08 12:55:07

I think it's a beautiful name. (But then it's my ds name). Everyone calls him zak which i love too.

3andnomore Thu 07-Aug-08 13:27:25

love the name Isaac....but would have never thought that it was pronounced eye-zik? doesn't really make sense to me.

lol hatrick how cam Ayo about then...not the obvious nickname choice....however, I actually know a bloke called's shortened from some name I could not pronounce, lol...but it started with Ayo....

frazzledoldbag34 Thu 07-Aug-08 14:11:35

I quite like Isa for short?
I would pronounce Isaac as I-zuck not I-Zack.
Probably why I prefer Isa pronounced as Eye-Za (not I-Sa) obviously.
But hey, it's your baby, your baby name.
