I had a friend with this name, only it was spelt Issraa. The meaning is very eerie.

I named my first daughter Isra as I wanted something unique not some typical top 10 names from google search or

But after a few years I realized people have struggles with its reading pronunciations. I just want people to call her as read Ez'ra. Simple! So I had to amend her name from Isra to Ezra. Esra would've been an option, but people would just call her Ez'ra anyway so it was a better option to just name her Ezra rather than various different spelling options. But I hate how some just won't accept that it sounds more feminine than masculine. I would never call my son Ezra. How many male names do we know that end with letters ra?

I can't believe that the person above me wants everyone around her to align themselves to her cultural perception of what makes things feminine and masculine. Ezra is thousands of years old and has a long history as a male name, yet this poster thinks that because she thinks names that end in "ra" are feminine it makes it feminine. Ridiculous. Your personal impression does not override thousands of years of history and you certainly cannot force anyone to think your way. You changed your daughter's name to a male name. Deal with the consequences.

And Isra is a lovely name for a girl.

This name is kind of boring in an English/American accent. But it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL if said in an Arabic accent.

Said as Iz-ruh? Or Iss-ruh?

Much prefer iz-ruh.

Isra is the definition of beauty, in my humble opinion. It has this elegance and uniqueness to it. It is absolutely lovely and rolls off the tongue perfectly. So, it is safe to say I love this name already.

This is so pretty :) it sounds like the female version of Ezra!

I'm amazed at how much beauty can be packed into only two syllables. Isra is charming and mysterious, and a much better alternative to Isabella or other popular choices.

I came across this name a while ago and completely fell in love with it. I generally love names that begin with Is- and I love how uncommon this one is. I am now considering this name for if I ever have a daughter.
