Comments for ISABELLE:

I like this version better than Isabel or Isabella. And it sounds like a very classy lady-like name.

I really like this name. Feminine without the frills. I think "Belle" would make a lovely nickname.
-- Labonne  2/24/2006
I like this name! It's absolutely pretty, sweet and elegant. And yeah, I agree it's much prettier than Isabel and Isabella. I guess French "belle" makes this name so lovely.
-- Lily Anastasia  3/3/2006
Isabelle is a very elegant pretty name. I love the nickname Belle.

This is a gorgeous name, but I prefer the way Isabel looks.

The English pronunciation of this name is very similar to the French, only the French (and Germans) place the accent the second syllible, so it's is-AH-belle, while in English it's is-a-BELLE.

Perhaps my favourite female name; I love the spelling and just the sound of it: it's so feminine and refined.
-- Lizdebiz  12/9/2006
I love this name but unfortunatly this site has no reccord of the name Isobelle which I think is much prettier than Isabelle.
-- maddy_01  1/15/2007
I like this name because it's classic and femenine, and the pronunciation is beautiful. I like names like that, I was debating what second (middle) name to give my daughter between: Isabelle, Gabrielle, Danielle. I decided on Isabelle, Her first name is going to be Nevaeh, so her complete name will be Nevaeh Isabelle. ^_^

I think this is a very pretty name. I know two Isabelles personally. One is a friend, who goes by Isa, Izzie and Belle. The other is a little girl I babysit, who goes by Issy. I prefer Belle, Bella and Izzie but it's a gorgeous name regardless. I can't choose whether I prefer Isabelle, Isabel or Isobel, though.

American actress Marlee Matlin & Kevin Grandalski have a daughter Isabelle Grandalski, who was born on 26th December 2003 in Los Angeles, California.
-- Karcoolka  6/5/2007
Isabelle is not THAT popular. Isabella is. They are very close though so that doesn't make it much better. I happen to love it with the nickname Belle although my husband likes Izzie better.

Boring, boring, boring. Uptight and boring. Still, it's better than Isabella, Isabel and other variations.
-- Anonymous User  11/15/2007
Very pretty.
-- Marilyn Monroe  11/28/2007
This is a cool name. Sounds like you're saying "is a bell".
-- jasmineenimsaj  2/7/2008
My name is Isabelle, and lots of you imagine Belle as a nickname, but I have only ever got nicknames relating to the IZ sound (Izzie, Izzabob, Izzibee etc hehe) I also know quite a few other Isabelles and not one of them gets called Belle. To be honest I would hate it if people started calling me Belle!
-- i-heart-me  2/25/2008
It's certainly a beautiful, classy name with an air of sophistication, and it sounds good on children and women alike, but it's also very common, and has become immensely popular. I actually prefer this to Isabella, as it just makes me think of a childhood friend of my sister's too much. I think this name is nicer with the stress on the second syllable.
-- slight night shiver  4/24/2008
Isabelle is such a beautiful name.
-- Wednesday Addams  4/26/2008
I love Isabelle! It's so classy and lovely! Much prettier than Isabella. And this is my favorite spelling, I don't like Isabel, Isobel, or any other spelling, I like Isabelle. I love the nicknames Izzie or Belle.

-- harry_sent_me  4/29/2008
I love the name Isabelle. I'm not too fond of Isabel or Isabella even though they are similar.
-- Fire1815  9/7/2008
There are so many little Isabelle and Isabella toddlers running around nowadays, and whenever I hear one of them being called Izzy, I want to puke. That nickname just sucks the beauty right out of this name. It's a gross and ignorant nickname. I can deal with Belle and Bella, but I prefer no nickname for this name at all. It's gorgeous in itself.
-- UnicornMacMac  5/25/2009
This name is also used in the Netherlands where it is pronounced ee-sah-BEL-luh. [noted -ed]
-- renee06  7/3/2009
My name is Isabelle and I am very happy with it. It's a simple, strong, but still quite unusual name with lots of nicknames! I get called everything from Belle, Bella, Isa, Issa and certain teachers call me Isabella. Here, in Sweden, it's not THAT usual and especially not in my age group!
Oh, and I have never been made fun of for it, which a lot of my friends have for theirs. A few people have tried to rhyme something stupid with it but they haven't succeeded.
-- Anonymous User  12/1/2009
I love the French pronunciation of this name. I find it to be glamorous and beautifully French--certainly one of the best names the language has given. I also love to say it--it feels very indulgent on my tongue what with all the stress put into the syllables!
-- Shahzadi  8/28/2010
I love this name. I think it's very classy and cute, and ages very well at the same time. I DESPISE the nickname Izzy however. I think it sounds like the sound a buzzing fly makes. Belle would be kind of cute as a nickname.
-- Chrila96  11/13/2010
My own first name is Isabelle, pronounced in the French way. My mother's from Denmark, and my father's from Algeria so they had to pick a name that fitted both languages! Therefor: Isabelle, the French way ;)
Well, I LOVE my name, and I've NEVER and I repeat NEVER met anyone with the name Isabelle, other than me. Though I know two girls with the name; Isabella.
I prefer Isabelle from Isobel, Isobelle, Isabella, and Isabel. (:
I've never had a nickname that haves anything to do with Isabelle, though one of my friends like to call me Bella, and another asked me if she could call me Isabella, and another can't pronounce Isabelle, so she calls me Isabella! Well.. I guess I have some nick names anyway! (:

Isabelle is a pretty name, but I like the Spanish spelling better.
-- EmmyT.  7/31/2011
Love, love, love Isabelle. I don't care for other spellings. It sounds refined, intelligent, and practical. I would seriously consider it if I have a girl.
-- GibsonGirl  11/5/2011
Isabelle is a beautiful name. It is feminine, elegant, sophisticated, strong, royal, has a lot of history, and an old-fashioned, vintage charm. Reminds me of the art-deco era.
Ages well, too.
I also like the other spellings, Isabel (Spanish) and Isobel (Scottish), but somehow I find Isabelle the most beautiful. That French touch at the end gives that little extra.

I used to have a friend named Isabelle, who went by Bobbi. She was so cool, but I don't really like the name. I think it's too popular.
-- LittleC  12/15/2012
Even though it's kind of common, it's not as overused as the way too Spanish/Italian Isabella. I personally like this spelling and Isabel/Isobel, but this one seems a little more old fashioned to me. The name izzy completely ruins the name though, imagine a grown woman named izzy!
-- Anonymous User  1/11/2013
I love this name, way better than Isabella. It's just very feminine and sweet. I just hate the other spellings Isabel and Isobel. The 'le' ending makes the name more complete.
-- MelissaR  4/11/2013
In France, this name screams 1960's. It was really, really popular in the 60's and 70's, and is now very rare. It's funny that this name is more popular for little girls in the US while it most likely belongs to a 40-something in France. It's a gorgeous name nonetheless, way better than Isabella, which I can't stand.

My name is Isabelle. I wanted to be called Izzy for a while, then changed the spelling to Issie. But I prefer Belle because it's so cute! My name (Isabelle Mettle) is rather odd though, because it sounds like a question. But personally, It's the best name ever!
