You just won't believe this but my family is in a huge fued over the name Isabella. Two of my sister in laws and a cousin all want to use the name to name their daughters and somehow the entire family is at each other over it. My brother is furious at my cousin which has our mother and her sister at odds and it just goes on and on. The most unbelievable thing of all is that NO ONE is even pregnant. I suggested that whoever delivers the first girl should get the name and you'd have thought I spoke blasphemy by the reaction.

I can't get over how stupid this all is.

This did make me laugh....and there is really no reason that they can't all use it....my grandmother and her best friend married brothers and became sisters in law. They were pregnant at the same time, and both wanted to use the name Richard. My great aunt gave birth first, and used the name and my grandmother chose David. But the funny thing is that the boys were never called by their given names by the family...the family is prone to nicknames and the boys both ended up with nicknames not at all related to their names....life is too short for most of the stuff people fight about....
