    Ace Knute?! And (pronounced Ka-nute) does not help. So Ka as in KArma and nute as in NUtella? WTF? How random. And before anyone says “but your name is Isabella. It’s so overused, not original”, I was born in ’89. No one had that name back then. But still it’s better to be an Isabella F, Isabella S., than an Ace Knute. What a nutty name.

    His middle name is Eric’s grandfather’s first name and it is a Swedish name, hence the different pronunciation.

    Ace is okay. Middle names aren’t used that much and don’t matter. I was expecting them to name him Shirley since their daughter has a boy name.

    The name Isabella has been around and common for a LONG time. That name is ancient.

    You don’t have to have a wedding to get married. They are not married because they do not want to be.

    Isabella Says:

    Well, it has been around. It’s the Italian form of the Spanish Isabel. Isabel is the Spanish form of Elizabeth. Elizabeth is from the Greek Elisabet. And Elisabet is the Greek version of the Hebrew Elisheva, It is ancient, it was in the bible.
    When it comes to popularity, it wasn’t popular until the 2000′s. It’s been in the top ten since 2004. But it wasn’t even in the top 1,000 popular names for girls until 1990 when it ranked at #894. All these statistics are from the U.S., where I’m from. I’m sure it’s always been a common name in Italy and other countries that use that version of Elizabeth.

    Was Eric’s grandfather Knute Rockne? He was a player and then coach at Notre Dame and was born in Norway. That guy was died in the thirties. They’re probably the first people in this decade naming their kid that. Hey, but it’s their kid.

    Family name is cool. Thing is Ace does not go well with family name. Ace Nut. No one will pronounce it correctly, hard name.
