A trend that we have been noticing over the last few years is the rising fame of the nicknames as first names. Some parents are forgoing the formality of naming their baby a full name and just skipping straight to the nickname instead.
What do you think of this trend?
Bella vs. Isabella
The name “Bella” is proving to be more popular than its full version, “Isabella” which is trending down currently.

Theo is a trending name, but has yet to overtake the full version of “ Theodore” which is not only popular but trending as well.
