# 3

Not another nonsense name.

anyway congrats to their baby boy

but that name..geez

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.

And the wedding is???????????????/

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.

@Isabella: #$

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

Ace Knute is alright, and I liked Maxwell too. Congrats to them!

She didnt have much of a break between the two, maybe the wedding is next :D

reminds me of canoe


Knute looks/sounds like an Eskimo name.


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

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.

congrat to the couple

@Isabella – girl, just STOP and sit down!

Who Cares @ 06/30/2013 at 7:42 pm

@Isabella – this post is about baby Ace – not you!

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.

Welcome oops baby!


I’m glad someone explained that middle name… I completely understand why now. Congrats to the both of them!

i love the name Ace, congrats to the family.

Go Ask Alice @ 07/01/2013 at 1:30 am

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

It’s always a wonderful day when a baby arrives in the world. Congradulations on the birth of you son.

Names are free…you should choose wisely. People would always murder his name…sad:(
