101 Gorgeous and Sweet Middle Names for Isabella

If you’ve made it past finally choosing a first name for your baby girl, you’re probably trying to make it complete with a middle name, as well. You want your child’s whole name to flow well together so picking both names can be a challenge. 

The name Isabella translates to “God is my oath” or that she will be devoted to God. This is a beautiful and powerful name of Spanish and Italian religious heritage.

When choosing a middle name for Isabella, there are many things to consider. Depending what is most important to you, there can be a lot of variables.

Just know that you may not be so fond of a name at first, but once you start associating it with your baby, you will fall in love with it!

How Do You Choose a Middle Name for Isabella?

A middle name can provide another meaningful part of a person’s name or it can just be used to make the whole name sound and flow better. There’s no right or wrong way to add a middle name for your baby Isabella. 

The amount of syllables don’t really matter when choosing a middle name, as long as it sounds good together. Most people think that with a longer syllable first name (like Isabella), you need a one syllable middle name, and with a one syllable first name, you need a longer middle name. 

That is definitely not the case because lots of different middle names can sound good with a 3 syllable first name like Isabella.

Isabella is a long, 3 syllable first name. It sounds nice as Isabella Rose, Isabella Michelle, and Isabella Victoria. Those are 1, 2, and 3 syllable middle names that all sound beautiful together. 

It’s just a personal preference for how long you want your child’s name to be.

Tips for choosing a middle name

Here are some questions I asked myself when picking middle names for my children. You can rank them in order of priority for your family because not all of them will be as important as others. 

  • Do you want to use a family name or initial?
  • Does it have a nice meaning to it?
  • Does it have meaning to us or our family?
  • Are there nicknames for this name that we want to use or avoid?
  • Is it too popular?
  • Is it too unique?
  • Does the name sound well with the first and last name?
  • Are there any negative associations you have with it?
  • What will her initials be?
  • What will that name sound like when they’re an adult or professional?

The biggest advice is to ignore what others think or have to say about names you are considering or choose. It’s such a personal decision for you and your family so don’t let any other outside influencers change your mind.

Once you have it narrowed down to 2-4 first and middle names, I suggest picking one name per week during your pregnancy, and referring to your baby as that name. 

Every time you talk about “the baby,” call her by that name. When you refer to her nursery or her movements in your belly, call her by that name.

At the end of that week, change it to another name. Do this for several weeks with your top choices to see which name sticks and feels the most genuine to you. Once you start actually referring to your baby as this name, you will feel even more of a connection to her.
