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.

Love this name, so gorgeous and classy. The nickname Sadie is so sweet with it, too.

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

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."

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.

Sort of old-fashioned. Or maybe it's just that I don't like "Isa" names.

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.

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. :)

Much prettier than the over-popular Isabella!

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.

Isadora Williams (born 1996 in Marietta, Georgia) is an American figure skater.

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

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

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

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

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

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 :-)
