Yes or no?

It seems like a really sweet alternative to Isabelle/Isabel/Isobel etc...

I personally prefer Isolda (Isolde sounds imo very old in German, but that probably/maybe doesn't apply to the UK?).

But Isolde is imo really nice as well smile

Yes from me!

Yika Sun 26-Mar-17 20:19:28

Yes. Beautiful. I know an Iseult which is also lovely.

I think it's gorgeous!

FancyPantsDelacroixTheFirst Sun 26-Mar-17 20:22:40

Lovely.

Knifegrinder Sun 26-Mar-17 20:23:03

I love it. Slightly prefer to Iseult spelling, but either is lovely.

Knifegrinder Sun 26-Mar-17 20:23:23

THE Iseult spelling, sorry.

Isolde - with the final 'e' prounounced - is very nice. But , as others have said, Iseult or Yseult is perhaps even better. Just a matter of personal opinion, however.

Lovely, a great choice.

Fattycowagain Sun 26-Mar-17 20:34:19

Excellent! We aren't in the UK and pronunciation is a bit different here, but I'm happy to hear it would work well in the UK too. Same with the name of our oldest, ends with an -e that is not pronounced in the UK, but is over here.

Lovely, great choice. It'd love to go for it for DD but it's been vetoed by my husband.

Such a classy name.

MaryWortleyMontagu Sun 26-Mar-17 20:39:14

I love it but I am pronouncing it the same as "isolda" as in the wagner opera tristan and isolde. If it's supposed to be pronounced as "is-old" then it sounds unfinished to my ears.

Lovely. Think the name is current!y being used for the Pagan Queen in The Last Kingdom but she is a cool character although her head gets cut off in battle.

MitzyLeFrouf Sun 26-Mar-17 20:44:29

I like it.

Rockaby Sun 26-Mar-17 20:53:36

Yes, yes, yes! I know one little Isolde and she is completely adorable.

I also like the Tristan and Isolde connection.

Sophronia Sun 26-Mar-17 20:58:34

I like it but it does sound a lot like "is older" or "is old".

ThoraGruntwhistle Sun 26-Mar-17 20:59:28

I like it. I prefer Iseult but Isolde is also lovely.

Curioushorse Sun 26-Mar-17 21:03:21

Not a completely happy story, is it? Apart from that though, gorgeous!

lottielonsdale Sun 26-Mar-17 21:04:07

It's my name. I changed it though blush

Jooni Sun 26-Mar-17 21:05:31

Yes, beautiful!

Rockaby Sun 26-Mar-17 21:08:25

curioushorse

Fair point...

goodpiemissedthechips Sun 26-Mar-17 21:10:27

I also prefer Iseult, though it's not what you asked wink

n0ne Sun 26-Mar-17 21:10:46

Beautiful!

SuperBeagle Sun 26-Mar-17 21:12:11

I don't like it at all.
