Subject: Jezebel and Isabel

For some reason, I have been thinking lately that the name Jezebel (Hebrew), which means "wicked," is somehow related to Isabel and its many variants (Isobel, Isabelle, Isabella, Izabela). I looked these names up, and they mean "consecrated to God." Even, so, the names are so similar, I'm still wondering whether it would be possible that they have any connection at all. Any thoughts on this?

Magda (from Magdalena, latinate form of Magdalene; variants: Madeleine, Maddalena)
