Comments for IZZY:

I'm sorry, but I can't call a person Izzy, but it is pretty cute for a character. :)

My friend Isabel's nickname is Izzy, and I hate it! I just call her Isabel, it is much prettier.

I personally love the name and my husband and I have chosen it as our next baby's name regardless of gender.

I think this is a cute nickname, it reminds me of the name Lizzy being short for Elizabeth.

I adore this as a nickname for Isabella. It's cute, yet can be girly and/or tom-boy.

A famous bearer is Koushirou "Izzy" Izumi from Digimon Adventure and Zero Two.

Not sure if this even counts, but the Guitar Hero character Izzy Sparks is a relatively well-known "famous" bearer of the name. Also, Izzy Maxwell who works on sound engineering for the Guitar Hero Games (also the bassist of band Count Zero) is a well-known bearer.

Personally, I like this name. It's very much a rock star name, and I think it just works well with males. For some reason though I really can't stand girls who are called Izzy. Probably because it's a rather common girls' name, so especially on television you're hearing "Izzy did this" and for a different show "Izzie did something awful". Anyway. Hope that was useful in some shape or form.

I like this name. It's cute and girly. When an Izzie grows up, though, she should be called by her full name. I prefer Isobel/Isabel.

I absolutely hate this nickname. Come to think of it, I dislike all nicknames of Isabel(le) and Isabella. This one's the worst, hands down. I hope no one has actually given this infantile name as an official name to their daughter.

This nickname makes me oddly uncomfortable, but I don't think I can quite place the reason why. It sounds scratchy and lazy to my ears. I do love the Izzy of Amy Goldman Koss's "Side Effects", though.
-- EmilyOlive  7/18/2008
My friend calls herself "Iz", short for "Elizabeth" and we sometimes call her "Izzy". On the wrong person it might sound bad, but it really suits her.
-- GreekMythology  8/18/2008
This is my sisters name (although she spells it Izzi) and I love it! It's short for Elizabeth though, and she gets really annoyed when people call her Isabel/Isabella (which a lot of people do!). Definitely one of my favourite names ever!

On the television schow "Scrubs", Izzy/Izzie is the nickname for the child of Chris and Carla Espinosa Turk, Isabella.
-- scholasticastewart  8/31/2009
My friend's name is Isobel, and we always call her Izzy. I think it suits her - she's quite unconventional and wears punky clothes. Though my favourite nickname for Isabel or Isobel is the Spanish Chabela, I think Izzy is really adorable. Though I usually like opt for "traditional" spellings, I prefer this Izzy spelling to Issy - it looks spunkier and more modern.

This is my nickname, and I think it's morphed into being my unofficial name, even on the roll they go "Izzy", not "Isabel". XD
Anyway, the only thing I have a bit iffy with this nickname is that some people write it as "Issy". I cringe every time.

It's think it's a very cute nickname for a boy or a girl.
-- Black_X  8/19/2011
I just simply don't understand the gumption with which some people seem to not like this name! My own SIL has told me she doesn't like it. But nevertheless we are very soon going to be welcoming a little Isabelle into the world. We plan to call her Izzy for her nickname! For as much as some don't like it, I DO! It's sweet and spunky. I like that the impression is open-ended. You really would have to get to know an Izzy, assumptions and stereotypes just wouldn't do. I never considered it being a male name too but certainly I can see that! I just love Izzy!

Before you settle on a nickname, consider teasing scenarios. Izzy is cute, but tack a "J-" on the front and you have a pretty vulgar rhyming taunt that middle schoolers will discover.

My wife and I just named our 3 day old son Izzy. Not a nickname, just Izzy. I've wanted a son for years and years so I could name him this. Funny thing is, after not being able to settle on what we'd name our baby if she came out a girl, we realized, hey, we like Izzy so much, we'll use it for either a son or daughter. But we're happy he came out a boy.

I've been trying to stop people from calling me this for years.
It's one of those inescapable nicknames, and it's awfully contagious. One person starts calling an Isabel/Isabelle/Isobel etc. Izzy and everyone else joins in.
