Although many parents choose names like Isabella, Mirabella or Arabella just so they can use Bella as a nickname, some may wish to take the direct route and head straight to Bella. Bella is getting a boost from parents who find themselves leaning more toward Ella than the super-popular Emma. Mark Ruffalo named his daughter Bella Noche (“beautiful night”). You get bonus points for this name if you're a fan of Bella Swan, the lead character of the "Twilight" novels and movies, or enjoy singing along with the Bellas, a female a cappella group in the "Pitch Perfect" movies.
