Jezebel and its Hebrew form Izevel are not in use. Izevel means "island of detritus". Athalia isn't use either, but Delilah is rare but used.

I always thought Isabel came from the Carthaginese names Ishbaal / Ezbel, meaning "the wife of Baal / the lord". To me it is very far from Elizabeth, which is also not so close of Elisheva, by the way.
