Just out of curiosity:

Isobel, how do you most of you pronounce it?

Its not very common in our Spanish community (it's either Isabel or Isabella)

So they are all very confused by the O in the name. I've heard Is-O-bel, Iso-belle, Is-a-bell.

Is it just them or are they pronouncing it wrong? This is very embarrasing, since Isobel is here (poor child). But I dont want her to go through the 'you say your name weird' stage. Evy has been picked on because of her name and I don't want Izzy to be picked on as well.

We pronounce it Is-oh-bell
