Bella

Bella is a red-hot name right now. Thanks to the massive vampire-in-love phenomenon known as Twilight, Bella has skyrocketed in popularity in recent years. After not even being on the name radar for over seventy years, it appeared out of thin air as parents worldwide raced to name their daughters after the fair-skinned human heroine of the books (and subsequent films.) It also fares as a nickname for the ever-popular Isabella.
