I absolutely love the meaning of this name -- "he laughs." It makes me picture a sweet baby boy giggling with an adorable grin on his face. It's such a sweet image.

Isaac is a noble name with a nice meaning. It's not very common these days (at least where I come from). If I had a son I might call him Isaac.

Isaac is a great name, sounds strong. I also love the meaning of this name. We all need laughter in our lives. It is increasing quickly in popularity.

I'm not a very big fan of this name, but the lead singer in The Fray is named Isaac. I saw them in concert and got my picture with him. They are an amazing band.

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.

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.

One of the main characters on the television show Heroes is Isaac.

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
An appropriate name for Isaac Asimov, who wrote several books on humor, and who loved to laugh.

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.

This is Jimmy Neutron's middle name on the Nickelodeon show.

This has always been my fave name. It has the best meaning and a good sound. I always associate it with cute little boys and like handsome people. It's the best!
-- dreamgirl54  11/8/2007
I absolutely love this name. I think it sounds nice and the meaning is great.

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?
-- Arnwald  1/10/2008
Pronounced as "Ee-zak" (shortly).

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.
-- Patricia Underwood  2/18/2008
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.
-- TigerLily0625  2/26/2008
Pronounced eye-zick.

Isaac Allerton was one of the most prominent people to arrive at Plymouth Colony on "The Mayflower" in 1621. He was a fool with money but a hard worker.
-- EmilyOlive  7/18/2008
This is a great name. If my wife and I ever have another son, his name will be Isaac. My son's name is Asher, which means "happy" and his little brother would be called Isaac, which means means "laughter".

What a great, handsome name for a boy, with a great meaning too. And hey, sharing a name with arguably the world's greatest mathematician doesn't hurt either.
-- emmiix3  4/4/2009
Cool name for a boy! It's so great! The Bible names are such good ones.
-- Anonymous User  10/6/2009
My name is Isaac and it is not all that often that you will see me laughing. Many people have said that I am the most stoic person they have ever met. My name means "laughter", that's as much laughter as I need.

For me, this name conjures an image of a gifted scientist or mathematician. It has a great meaning, too. If only it weren't so popular.

Can be pronounce "I-sak" or "EE-sak". I know people of both pronunciation.

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 Dian is the name of a character in the anime/manga/novel series Baccano.
-- missmarlenesinclair  5/7/2010
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.
-- Anonymous User  7/5/2010
I love this name. It's great for a little boy and a grown man :) It's adorable!
-- EsmeeRose  9/16/2010
Great meaning and sound, but it's really popular :(
-- Chrila96  9/23/2010
Strangely, I have never met one Isaac. I like the name. I think "Izzy" would be a cool nickname.
-- Dawson  1/9/2011
Isaac Hanson is the "ugly one" from the early 90's boy band Hanson.
-- Anonymous User  6/5/2011
Eh it's ok but it sounds dorky. I've seen far worse, but I've also seen far better.
-- Anonymous User  7/8/2011
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.
-- Black_X  8/10/2011
Handsome boys name with a beautiful meaning.
-- Amanda_M87  2/25/2012
This is my little brothers name and it would have been mine if I was a boy. I call him Ike, Iggy, Iggy Piggy, Iggle Piggle or Iggledy Piggledy.

Despite the heavy damage from the hurricane in 2012, the name Isaac was not retired. Therefore, Isaac will be used again in 2018.

It's a nice name, but its gotten too common. So sad, because it could've been such an classic and unique name! It seems like this type of thing is happening to more and more names these days :(

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. :>
