How would you spell it??
06/04/2014 at 13:45
This name was on both my and H's short lists... But it had to get scrapped because I didn't like Isabelle and loved Isobel, and he refused to consider any spelling other than Isabelle!

My cousin has an Isabelle - I definitely like Belle at the end x

Either Isobel or Isabelle. T has an Isobel and Isabella in his class.

Isabelle for me!

Isabel. Seems the 'cleanest' (closest to how it's said, I like the simplicity!)
06/04/2014 at 15:35
I like Isobel.

My friend is isabel as is her mum (spanish both of them)

I liked Isobel & my hubby wanted the belle ending which is how come we ended up with Isobelle. Problem is we'd decided on the name for such a long time that there was no going back on it!! Believe me, a LOT of discussion went into our decision! Good luck!!

My friend has a daughter called Isabelle but I've come across children with all the variations you've listed.

I like Isabelle or Isabella best. Looks 'prettiest' to me. My SIL is Isobel so we wouldn't have it, else it may have been a serious contender!

We have an Isabelle, I have seen many different versions of this. Think it also depends on what other names and surname it has to go with, we felt this spelling flowed better with ours.
07/04/2014 at 08:57
Thanks ladies, votes for all versions!
H and I were chatting last night and it transpires that he absolutely 100% only likes the Isabelle version, so if this does end up being her name I guess the spelling is sorted now!
Sujac, her middle name will be Lillian, so Isabelle Lillian if we go ahead with it. Still three months to go though so things could still very easily change!

P's middle name is Isobel x

I'm jealous with how quickly you agreed on the spelling, honestly you won't be believe how many hours we spent debating this! You name choice looks lovely x
Isabelle for me!
07/04/2014 at 09:14
Ha Blackkat, we've only agreed because I daren't disagree! It's the first name that my H has even vaguely agreed with, so he can spell it whatever he wants as long as we're a step closer to finding a name for her! Lol! Thank you :)
07/04/2014 at 09:28
Sounds good Figaro. Can't believe we agreed on it as a name for at least a year before even discussing the spelling! My h hasn't agreed with any names this time, think it's gonna be a long search!
08/04/2014 at 08:41
Thanks everyone for your input, Isabelle is looking like a serious contender :)
BK, my H is a nightmare for agreeing names with, that's why I'm seizing Isabelle with both hands! Hope you come up with something you like soon x
