Comments for YSABEL:

How is this name pronounced exactly? Is it Sa-bel, Sal-belle, or Ya-sa-bel, or what?

I'm no expert on this name, but I would of thought the pronunciation is more than obvious - just like Isabel and it's other variants.

NO! This is ridiculus! It is absolutely stupid, I don't understand it, why do people ruin names!

It's not as bad as some names put there, but it's still far from great. It doesn't really look like Isabel. The "Y" is too confusing.

This is the name of a novel by Guy Gavriel Kay.

I always thought it was Spanish. Google turns up a number of Spanish Ysabels, plus Santa Ysabel, a Spanish-founded colony in CA. [noted -ed]

The name isn't ruined at all, I love this variation of the name, and since it's used so much it's great for people who want to use it, as it won't seem as common if it is spelt differently and won't be so obvious to people. When I read it I see and pronounce it exactly the same as I would Izobel (Izabel), or Isabelle (Izabelle).

This is wrong, Ysabel is a Spanish name that has been used for many, many centuries. It was a popular name in Spain around the 12-1500's (I can't remember exactly what years). [noted -ed]

It's not pronounced quite like Isabel, but reather as EES-ah-bel. Stress on the EE sound of the Y, and a soft S.

This name looks so tacky. Stick to Isabel people.

Queen Isabella of Castille was actually Queen Ysabel, because that was the Catalan form of her name. This is NOT some tacky new version of Isabel, it's just an outdated spelling of it. :)

This is the name of a former queen of Spain, although she was commonly called Isabella.

I'm surprised that Ysabel is a legit spelling--the original, no less. I think this form of the name is intriguing.

Well this looks weird. It seems like its be pronounced why-sa-bel or yiz-a-bel.
