Isabella is family oriented and she blames all the negativity that happens in her life on her family and yet gives credit for all the positive things that happen to her family also. Isabella considers it her responsibility to take care of her parents when they are older.

She is amicable, but won't change who she is to be more liked. She is smart in school, knows how to work, but can be a bit lazy.

Isabella takes her time to make decisions as she wants to make the right decision the first time and doesn't like to backtrack. She can see things from another person's point of view, yet that doesn't mean she agrees with that point of view.

She can be a bit competitive at times and craves being included. Thus she wants to be invited to an event even when she has no intention of coming. To order the complete description of this name, or any other name, please click here.
