This name has grown on me and now I love it so much. It sounds both classy and exotic. She will be Isolde Francesca.

Isolde is full of magic, whimsy, romance and mystery. It's an exquisite name with wonderful literary associations.

"Tristan und Isolde" or, in English, "Tristan and Isolde" is a 19th-century German opera by Richard Wagner. It was the inspiration for the 2005 movie.

I always have troubles pronouncing this one.

I have also heard this pronounced EES-OLD.

No offense but I just can't stand this name, it sounds cold and harsh. Also, it sounds like you are saying, is old. I wouldn't want that for a name, especially on a young kid.

I absolutely LOVE this name! I think it is gorgeous and different in a wonderful way!

I love this name. It's so beautiful. And I think Isi is a cute nickname.

I just don't find this name pretty at all and can't understand where the fascination for this name comes from. Glad it isn't my name and I wouldn't use for my kid either, no offense.

I love this name. It's so beautiful, unique, and steeped in history and folklore.

It's from the pan-Celtic root word seullt (to gaze upon) or Welsh syllt (fair to look upon) + y (the), the beautiful one, in a physical sense.
Ysyllt, Iseult, Isolde.

The daughter of Richard and Cosima Wagner was called Isolde. She was born before their marriage.

Isolde, a Dublin princess, was pledged to King Mark of Cornwall and did fall in love with Tristan who was sent to collect her. However although Tristan was slain and too wounded for Isolde's famous herbal remedies to cure him she lived on and reigned as a fair and wise Queen with King Mark. Isolda's tower marked the boundary between Dublin (the Pale) and the wild Irish. It was rediscovered along the quays in Dublin in July 1993.

Pardon me if I'm mistaken, but wouldn't this name be pronounced ee-SOL-da according to most Gaelic pronunciation rules?

I personally adore Isolde. I think she is such a rare yet entirely gorgeous name. I pronounced the name as ih-ZOLD.

I actually think this name is quite ugly, and it sounds quite pompous on a person anyway. Tristan is a simple, beautiful name that doesn't sound over-the-top, but this just screams ''pretentious''.

A possible Albanian variation on Isolde may be Isilda, the name of a friend of mine.
-- katemoose  7/12/2008
Bleh, pretentious.
-- Kerules  5/25/2009
If a person named Isolde was 80, a young person would be like "Isolde IS OLD".

Isolde was a main character in Marilyn French's bestselling novel 'The Women's Room.' She was nicknamed Iso.

This is a lovely name. It has such a delicate, fairy tale quality to it.
-- sunshinechild67  5/30/2010
I don't like this name. It looks and sounds like is-old.
-- Book_Reader22  2/14/2011
I love this name. It looks and sounds so ethereal.
-- Anonymous User  3/2/2011
This name is so rare and unusual, it sounds quite petite and delicate; I can definitely see it on a little blonde girl. :-)
-- walesgal92  5/29/2011
When I first heard this name, I wasn't convinced. I thought it sounded cold and very old. However, I couldn't get the literary connotations out of my head. Now, when I hear it, I can't help thinking of a beautiful medieval princess, with fair hair and pale skin, who is very graceful.

I love the Tristan and Isolde story (and the names). Isolde is a beautiful, underappreciated classic that is still wearable today. Of course, if I ever do have a son named Tristan I won't be able to use this, but it's lovely anyway. Since the name is so rare, I think it would go best with a more familiar name such as Emily or Fiona.

A person I know from school is friends with an Isolde, born in Ireland, and she's the only real-life bearer I know.

I really like this name, its one of my favorites. I think its very pretty, I don't understand why some don't like it.
I love how it has both 'ice' and 'battle' in it, which is why I chose it for my Skyrim character's name.

The name Isolde is undeniably beautiful, special, brilliant and sophisticated! :D.
