Like it / don't like it?

Isabella is a Queens name, was in fact an English Queens name (OK, she was French, so stretching a point) so has been around these parts since 1308.

Classic, rather than popular, methinks.

"It's too long and hard to say."

I think it rolls off the tongue rather easily! I think it is a lovely name but yes, it has been used too often recently - every other girl seems to an Isabella round here.

Despite being a 'classic' name, it has had a huge cyclical surge over the past few years and will therefore sound 'dated' to the 2000-2010 period imo.

Personally I'd go for a more 'timeless' name - love Isadora, Carlotta, Theodora, Antonia for example.
