I like this version better than Isabel or Isabella. And it sounds like a very classy lady-like name.
iwant2baurora  11/2/2005
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.
― Anonymous User  4/26/2006
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.

Fleur Isabelle Delacour is a character in the Harry Potter series. She was in the Triwizard Tournament and went to Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. She is married to Bill Weasley, and they have two daughters, Victoire and Dominique, and a son, Louis. She also has a sister named Gabrielle.
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!

I love the name Isabelle lol cause it's my name and my family calls me Belle, and my friends call me Izzy.

Sounds like 'eez a bell', which my hubby said could be he's a bell... so I'm not too keen on it.

I personally don't find Isabelle to be too popular. I love the name. Maybe it's just me, because I also don't know a single Ashley... Anyway, despite ANY popularity whatsoever, a pretty name is a pretty name, and this name is pretty.

This is my middle name. I really like the spelling this way because I think it looks more professional and just looks nicer. :)
.Morgan.Isabelle.  5/31/2015
This might be a stretch, but this spelling of the name could mean "is a beauty." Belle in French means "beauty," and the first part of the name sounds like the English "is a." So cute!
― Anonymous User  6/12/2015
I absolutely LOVE this name. It's getting a bit too popular for my taste, but in a little while it should be fine. In a world overrun by 5-year-old Isabellas, Isabelle is a good change.
actingfun  8/23/2015
I love this name; I find myself wishing I was named Isabelle! It might be too popular now for me though. Maybe in 20 years when if I have kids it won't be!
al84  9/24/2015
I love this name, I didn't really care for it until the game Animal Crossing New Leaf came out with a character named Isabelle (she's a cutie).

Also, if a name is popular you can still use it, don't be so put off by it.
(such a pet peeve of mine on every comment section on here).
― Anonymous User  10/13/2015
This name is popular but Isabella is more popular. Oh well, it's beautiful! No wonder a lot of people like it! I might use it someday too!

I personally like this name better than Isabella, this sounds too childish. The -belle at the end makes this name perfect for someone younger and older. It sounds very sophisticated.
cziehl  11/23/2015
In French Isabelle is pronounced very differently than in English.


I- in French is pronounced like a long e

S- pronounced with sibilantly. NOT like a z in English.
cziehl  11/23/2015
My 18 year old daughter is Isabelle. She likes it. She says the boys really like it. :) We named her because we wanted something classic, pretty, feminine, and looked good on a resume. She always makes a joke that most of the Isabelles she ever meets are either 3 or 93, so she has never been in the same class with another Isabelle.

Although both names are nice, I like Isabelle more. Isabella vs Isabelle, my decision would go to Isabelle.
― Anonymous User  10/7/2016
My name is Isabelle and I love it. When I was younger I thought it was weird and used to be made fun of for it. It is a classic name that is not very popular with my age group (I was born in 1999). However, it has grown enormously popular since 2010. My name is unique, but something that is still familiar. I have always been called Belle and Bella by my family. I was called "Izzy" when I was in grade school by my friends, but it wore off. I particularly like being called Belle and Bella by those I am close to.
― Anonymous User  10/20/2016
I prefer the Scottish version Isobel (pronounced the same as Isabelle).

Isabelle Geffroy, better known by the nickname Zaz, is a French singer-songwriter who mixes jazzy styles, French variety, soul and acoustic. She is famous for her hit "Je veux", from her first album, Zaz, released on 10 May 2010.
cutenose  1/12/2017
My name is Isabelle. I was born in '99 and I've never met another Isabelle spelled the same way, but I've known/known of about five other girls with variations of it (Isabel, Isabella). I didn't like my name as a child because of how it looked when I wrote it. Now that I'm older I love it as many do. I love being called Isabelle in full, and I don't mind when substitute teachers call me Isabella. I prefer Belle to Bella, and Bella to Izzy. My mom calls me Isa (EE-SAH) and also Ris like Wrist without the T?

I think Isabelle has an ethereal youth to it, it reminds me of soft beauty. It has a strength to it, yet it is not harsh. To me, it is kind. I think it complements a girl as she ages. It is playful for a child, lovely for a young woman, strong for a mother.
