My brother is named Isaac. In my family, apparently every name of my brothers (besides mine) are from the bible.

Jonathan; my younger brother. Lucas, my second youngest brother. And Isaac, my youngest brother...

That's really funny.

Maybe it's Japanese. Isaki Lacuesta is a Spanish director but maybe is of Japanese descent because in film affinity is related to Naomi Kawase.

It sounds very old fashioned, and I don't like names with two As.

Isaac means laughter - what more can you ask from a name? Told his teacher this and she thought it was fantastic - and they've a project about names on the go!

I really like this name for some reason. I'm not sure why, although it may have something to do with the sound or the associations I come up with. I would so use this!

Sarah is the one who laughed because she thought what God said was impossible, not Abraham.

"Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also/ And the Lord said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh" -Genesis 18:12-15. [noted -ed]

This is my second son's name, one of the strongest sounding names from the bible in my opinion. Such a mischievous boy but also very empathetic and sweet! I think his name suits all these traits.

In 1970 we named our son Isaac because we (Bill and Debbie) were looking for a classic name that wasn't common. I'm shocked to see how popular it's become. As a child he wouldn't let us call him Ike or Izzy, but we could get away with Yitzhak now and then. As an adult, though, all his friends know him as Ike and only family still calls him Isaac.

My name is Isaac. I got the name for my birthday and have never heard any bad comments about it. The opposite, people love my name.
annoymous  3/11/2017
My granddaughter, who just had her fourth child on August 16, 2016 named him Isaac Jude.
Her mother and I and her stepdad all think it is a great choice. We are glad that for their last child they gave him a biblical name. Isaac is a strong and wonderful name.
Love that it means he will laugh, he will rejoice. We all in our family both sides have no other Isaac's in our families and I never knew anyone named Isaac so to us it it a different name. We realize it is a basically Jewish name but we love it and we are biblical Christians.
ladylydia78  10/15/2016
I love it! I was in between Lucas or Isaac and decided on Isaac as this name is so unique and classic yet very masculine for a boy!
Ig85  10/7/2016
I know HEAPS of Isaacs and all of them great people. I have never heard people nickname them 'Izzy' it sounds to girlish. But I love the name so I would definitely still use it.
― Anonymous User  8/7/2016
It's too common for my taste, but I like the nickname Izzy enough to encourage its use. Plus the meaning is sweet; "he will laugh."

Whenever I think of "Isaac", the word "Asimov" comes immediately into my mind. I am a devoted Asimovian, so this name is a very literary name to me. I am not religious, and am not a fan of the "Binding of Isaac" video game, so Asimov is the only Isaac that is noteworthy to ME.
Amedee Lupien  8/24/2015
In my opinion, Isaac is a really cool name. I would use it for a fictional character.

Isaac is the main character in the game The Binding of Isaac, where he flees into a basement after his mother tries to kill him. "Isaac" means "he laughs", but ironically, Isaac is crying. Not exactly famous, but still an interesting fact. :>

It's got a pretty good meaning, some nice history, and you get the cute nickname Izzy out of it, but I've met at least six Isaacs, and the sound isn't exactly pleasant.

Nice name! I also remember the song "Isaac" by Madonna off her album "Confessions on a Dance Floor". I also find interesting the biblical history/origin of Isaac. And to conclude, it's a very cool and unique name.

Famous bearers: all the students, past and present, of the University of Cape Town.

When UCT was founded, there was an Afrikaans-medium university in a small town near by - the University of Stellenbosch. And you don't get many, if any, Jews who speak Afrikaans. That meant that UCT had what some people perceived as a disproportionately Jewish student body, so the students were given what people also perceived as a typically Jewish nickname: Ikey, short for Isaac. We all wear it proudly, including the growing numbers of Muslim students.

Isaac was the first child of the once barren Hannah. After he was weaned she took him to the temple and gave him back to the LORD just as she had promised she would. Isaac became a person who was very well respected.

Actually, Isaac was the son of Sarah and Abraham, not Hannah. When the angels said she would have a son, she laughed, hence the name Isaac.

The most famous Isaac is the son of Abraham, who -- at God's command -- is willing to kill his son. An ugly story. One of my grandfathers was named Isaac. Even if you thought it was God's command, why be willing to kill an innocent child?

Evil  7/26/2007
This is an incredibly brilliant name. Its meaning is undisputably great, and it is terribly cute for a little boy, and very masculine for an adolescent and adult. It doesn't seem to lose its youthfulness with age, either. I also somewhat fancy the nickname "Zak", myself.

An appropriate name for Isaac Asimov, who wrote several books on humor, and who loved to laugh.
― Anonymous User  2/16/2007
To build on the anonymous user of February 16, 2007,

Asimov was also a professor of biochemistry at the Boston University School of Medicine, a polymath in the educational field, a very influential science fiction writer who wrote about the Three Laws of Robotics, the original Galactic Empire and subsequent Foundations, and other such classics, and a nonfictional writing master.

Overall, a very intellectual name either way.
Amedee Lupien  8/24/2015
From my studies, I've learnt that Isaac means "laughter". Either way, both are sufficient for this name. At the time, this is my all-time favorite name.
dreadfulxsorry  1/18/2007
The name is actually from the 'he' form of the future tense of the verb לצחוק - 'to laugh' or 'to joke' in modern Hebrew. In biblical Hebrew it had more of the idea of 'to rejoice'. So, strictly speaking, Isaac (יצחק - pronounced 'yits-khak') in biblical times meant 'he will rejoice'. (The 'kh' sound is a guttural sound pronounced like the 'ch' in 'loch' or the German 'ch'.)

To dreadfulxsorry - the word for laughter is צחוק, pronounced roughly 'tse-khok'. So, while the name Isaac is related to the word 'laughter' (or 'rejoicing' in biblical Hebrew), it actually means 'he will laugh' in modern Hebrew or 'he will rejoice' in biblical Hebrew. [noted -ed]

I love the name Isaac. I have a cousin named Willem Isaac and his name suits him perfectly. He's seven and in his entire life, I have never seen him unhappy. He's definitely the happiest person I know.
skatergirl2  7/28/2006
Isaac was the name of the main adolescent baddie in the 80s horror flick Children of the Corn. He was the freaky little black haired kid with the scary weird voice. (His right hand boy was Malachi -- another *great* name with a terrible reputation due to this movie.)

It certinly isn't a diffficult association to overcome, but conjures bad Nebraskan corn-field memories for those of my generation. ((chuckles))

Otherwise a strong, solid choice. I love it, personally.
