Love Sophia but then I am biased because I've just had one! BUT there are a lot around at the moment (3 in one baby group of 9 babies!!!) and a lot of Isobels too ( but not so many Isobellas). That said everyone always says what a beautiful name Sophia is. We also considered Gabrielle but mainly because I liked the nn Gaby, not many of them around either. I'm not being very helpful am I?!!
Gabriella is a beautiful name. I have personally always thought it worked best on someone dark-haired which is why I've not been tempted by it myself, although Lady Gabriella Windsor is fair and carries it off well.
