Isabelle vs. Isabel vs. Isobel

Which spelling do you like best? I was just wondering because I have seen all these spellings on polls and wanted to know which one was most popular. Also does anyone like the spelling Isobelle? Thanks, Nessa.

The Top Baby Name is...

Name Votes
Isabelle 60% (24 votes)
Isabel 23% (9 votes)
Isobel 18% (7 votes)


I don’t like the o in the spelling at all ... it makes me want to pronounce the o like in row, mow, etc.

Isobel is the Scots form of the Spanish Isabel. As I’m scots, I prefer Isobel. She feels fresher than the other forms. Isabel is the only other form of the name I personally like.

I don’t care for the o in it at all. It makes it look like ice-o-bell

I like Isbelle, however i think it is the most used spelling so to stand out you could use Isobel though this might be mis-spelled by others. Hope that helps!

What sort of nn do you wish her to have? With the "belle" ending your more likely to have people calling her "Bella" rather than "Izzy" which you get from the others. Plus I believe there’s a difference in pronounciation depending on spelling - Is-a-belle vs. Iz-o-bel
