I’m normally not a fan of names that end in Dora, but this isn’t bad!

I love it! I like Isabel better than Isabelle, but both are very common. Isadora is more unique, though, and very ethereal. Much more to my taste. Plus, Isadora Quagmire was always my favorite character throughout my tween years. I like Isadora and Arya as twin girl names. Plus, there are so many more nicknames than Dora if you don't like that. Izzy, Isa, Iz, Dory, etc.

I love it.

Need I say more?

It's alright. Unusual without being too out there.

My name is Izadora and ya'll are spelling it wrong, it is not spelled Isidora or Isadora I think it is a good name for someone with a good life ahead of them, and I think more girls should be named Izadora- it has a lot of meaning to it.

I came across this name for the first time when I noticed that Björk has a daughter with this name. Its sound, meaning and bearer make it very ethereal like a forest healer or a ballerina. It is surely better than Isidora.

Isadora (as a form of Isidora) was used in 2016 for naming 7 babies in Italy.

Simply gorgeous.

This spelling is wrong for a name meaning "gift of Isis." Isis's name is never spelled "Isas." Isadora seems to be either a spelling based on neutralizing Isis to "I-suss" - or it's not the same name as Isidora at all, and is an invented name derived from combining Isabella with Theodora or another -dora name.
I don't understand why anyone prefers this over Isidora. Maybe people are afraid to refer to the goddess Isis? Maybe they'd like to pretend it's not a pagan name? Or maybe they just don't know how to spell it, because Isadora has been popularized.
Also, Isadora has the word "sad" in it. I don't know about you, but it would bother me if my name had the words "I sad" in it, and I had to start with "I sad" every time I signed my name.
I wish people would consider the lovely name Isidora, instead of Isadora.

With names like Isabel /Isabella getting so much attention these days it's surprising that Isadora hasn't climbed the charts in popularity. It's definitely a beautiful name that deserves to become more popular. But I suppose it's rarity is part of its magic :-)

The name Isadora was given to 169 girls born in the US in 2015.

This sounds soft and whimsical to me, like a ballerina.

The Greek meaning of Isadora is 'Gift of Isis'. Isis is an Egyptian Goddess.

One of my daughter's is called Isadora Opal and she has a twin brother named Jarvis Dale. Nicer than Isabelle - more unique and elegant.

The name Isadora was given to 148 baby girls born in the US in 2012 :)

This spelling (Isadora, with an A, instead of Isidora) was probably influenced by the spelling of Isabel.

Anything with "Dora" (with the exception of Dorothy) in it is not going to go over well..

My husband and I love this name. Our daughter will be named Isadora Mae--Sadie Mae. Mae is after his grandma Mae and also a tribute to my recently late grandma Mary.

I think it's a beautiful name. And wonderfully underused and old fashioned.

Much prettier than the over-popular Isabella!
Dawson  10/10/2010
I really love this name; it's really strange and quirky, probably because it's underused. I don't know why, but when I think of this name, I think of a sort of very old, wooden, possibly Victorian era-styled puzzle box that has some sort of magical quality to it. This name just sounds so quietly mystifying, and I suppose that's why I like it. :)

Well, old-fashioned names aren't bad. This name just isn't my taste, though it's better than Isabella for sure. There's also the fact that Isadora Duncan's love of fashionable scarfs lead to her death. Isadora Quagmire is a pretty cool character, though.
Kerules  6/19/2009
Sort of old-fashioned. Or maybe it's just that I don't like "Isa" names.
Kerules  4/7/2009
I've always loved this name. I don't know why, because other "Isa" names, like Isabel and Isabella I just started liking recently and I've never liked Dora at all, but this name is just so pretty. Once in third grade I caught a spider and named her this, though my dog ate her.
thecookiemonster  2/12/2009
I love this name! It's pretty, but not over used like Isabella and Isabelle. Izzy makes a cute nickname, but to me Dora is to much "The Explorer."

This is such an elegant name, but I hate the possibility of Dora as a nickname.

Love this name, so gorgeous and classy. The nickname Sadie is so sweet with it, too.
pennycarroll  5/13/2008
Beautiful name, but it always makes me think about a make-up brand with the same name, so the association is kind of tacky. Well, at least this one isn't as overused as Isabella and Isabelle, along with their variations.

Isadora Quagmire and her brother Duncan were named after the dancer, Isadora Duncan.

This is the name of a character in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events books, Isadora Quagmire, and her triplet brothers, Duncan and Quigley.
