Meaning

This lovely little Italian name has sky-rocketed in baby-name ratings in recent years. The female form of the Italian word for “beautiful”, Bella is short, sweet and oh-so feminine. Bella is the diminutive of Italian names ending in -ella, like Isabella and Annabella. Along with the French variant Belle, Bella does incredibly well on its own as, quite literally, a beautiful first name!
