I believe the Spanish pronunciation is ee-SOW-rah.

I think it could easily work as an English name, like Lydia, which has similar origins. An English-speaker would probably pronounce it i-ZAWR-ə or ie-ZAWR-ə. [noted -ed]

I personally think Isaura is a pretty name that definetely deserves more attention. A nice nickname would be Isis (ee-sees).
