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.

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?

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 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. :>
