Isla vs. Ruby

Looking through this site for ideas for baby girl I stumbled upon these two names and immediately fell in love with them. I really want a "girly girl" name so in your opinion which one sounds more girly?

The Top Baby Name is...

Name Votes
Isla 66% (21 votes)
Ruby 34% (11 votes)


Just one question. How do you say the name Isla?

I like both but wouldn’t have either personally. They are both really too popular.

Ruby is the most girly IMO. But Isla is also v pretty. It’s just all over this site right now. You only have to search to see that.

Popularity doesn’t bother me, both my husband and I have popular names and it was never a problem and also popularity is based on where you live and I have been a preschool teacher for 7 years and have never once had an Isla and have only had 2 Ruby’s. -poster

It’s just my opinion.

I’ve never met a Ruby or an Isla. Just because they are popular on this site does not mean that they are always the names that the poll poster goes with. I think Isla is the girliest!

I know 2 Isla’s and a Ruby. I appreciate it’s not a question of popularity for you, but it really would bother me. I have a common name. There were 6 of us in the class. I hated it.

I do like both names though. Leaning towards Ruby. I don’t hear that as much.

I’ve only met one Isla and only a handful of Rubys throughout my life.

Yes, the name be popular on THIS site, but this site doesn’t represent the world. Isla is still fairly underused in the states because they are still obsessed with Ava, Olivia, Mia, Emma, etc.. I think it’s much more popular in the U.K., though.

Either way, Isla is the prettiest in my opinion. It’s ageless, elegant and charming.

I think they’re both beautiful names so its hard to decide but I think as far as "girly" goes I’d have to say Isla only because it has a softer "feel" if that makes any sense. No matter which one you choose there is no doubt she will have a gorgeous name, GL.
