My daughter's name will be Faith and her middle name will be Isa/obel.
Faith Isobel or Faith Isabel?
Which one do you prefer and which one sounds the best?
We don't like Isabelle with it and Isobelle was ruled out recently.

Her older siblings are Leo Duncan, Sophie Gemma and Beatrice Laura.
Please choose and say why.

I like Isabel, but that is how we spell it in my country which is why

I think Faith Isobel looks best - I like how the vowels are different.

But then I'm a bit biased grin

I prefer Isobel but either is fine

I prefer isabel. It's the traditional biblical spelling, Spain has a queen isabel and to me isobel reads as i-so-bel instead if is-o-bel

I prefer Isobel for no reason other than I do

Isabel. Not sure the reason why, it's just the spelling that automatically pops into my head when I hear the name.

I like Isobel best. I also love the name Faith! Beautiful choices OP.

Isobel of the two, although Isabelle is my favourite spelling.

Isobel, lovely Scottish spelling definitely.

BlahBlahBlahEtc Fri 10-Feb-17 20:25:39

I like Isabel. Isobel looks strange to me for some reason.
Nice names btw smile

Abetes Fri 10-Feb-17 20:26:52

Isobel. More traditional I think.

tireddotcom72 Fri 10-Feb-17 20:28:00

Isabelle to me it just looks posher - and it's dd name

EmilyDog1 Fri 10-Feb-17 20:33:41

I personally prefer Isabelle myself but if you want to choose between the two, I prefer Isobel as Isabel looks like a misspelling of Isabelle to me.

Sophronia Fri 10-Feb-17 23:50:21

Isobel. I think Isobel Faith is nicer than Faith Isobel though.

I prefer Isabel.

Faith Isabel.

Having said that, the two people I know with this name both spell it Isobel.

P1nkSparkles Sat 11-Feb-17 03:26:52

Dd has Isobel as her middle name as I loved this spelling...

stuckinthehouse Sat 11-Feb-17 12:57:24

I think Isabelle is the nicest.

AlwaysTheWinner Sat 11-Feb-17 12:59:09

I prefer Isabel. It's a lovely name however it is spelt though!

Mrsknackered Sat 11-Feb-17 13:54:55

I prefer Isobel by a lot!

maybefallingapart Sat 11-Feb-17 14:09:00

Isabel. I have one. But it gets spelt Isabel Isobel Isabelle izabelle and has been shortened to Izzy or Issy even though we don't shorten names here
