I keep coming back to this one (it's been on and off my shotlist twice) and would love to have your thoughts on it!

And you could have a little boy called Duncan (or about a million older people asking if you are going to...)

reminds me of that awful wizadora show

nickytwotimes Sat 14-Jun-08 20:55:26

I really like it.
Does bring Isadora Duncan to mind, but moat names remind oy uof someone well known?

WillburyNibbleQC Sat 14-Jun-08 20:55:36

Not keen, tbh. smile

I like it, because she can be a 'normal' Izzie and only tell occasional people she's really Isadora.

I work with someone called Mat and I assumed the one t was just the usual pretentious one t routine but actually he's called Mathieu, so fair play to him!

its nice but i only know of the one isadora duncan and i think it might be a bit doomed

LaDiDaDi Sat 14-Jun-08 20:57:15

Ooh I love it!

WelliesAndPyjamas Sat 14-Jun-08 21:03:02

pretty

dizzydixies Sat 14-Jun-08 22:13:41

I love it too but can't have it because of our surname wink

love the nn Isa

I know a little Isadora - never shortened to anything. Her sister is Viviana

lotspot Sat 14-Jun-08 22:51:22

makes me want to go 'Isadora-ble' blush

*goes back to hide in corner*

Isadora, we adore her....

Don't like it, tbh.

Sounds like you're trying too hard to be different.

Mummyandi Sun 15-Jun-08 11:47:38

First thing that came to mind was same as branflake. Isadora we adore her. But the show isn't on any more so maybe you would be ok

findtheriver Sun 15-Jun-08 11:50:44

It's a fab name! She can be Izzy(without having the sooo overdone Isobel or Isabella) or Dora.

Isa is a standard abbreviation for isabelle/Isabella in France, Spain, italy and very very pretty IMHO - have nown loads of very chic French and Spanish girls by that name, so yes, a vote for Isadora with Isa for short

Love it, would have liked it for a girl but
a)didn't work with surname
b)had a boy!

artichokes Sun 15-Jun-08 14:33:57

Its sweet if you don't mind a thousand references to Isadora Duncan.
Love Dora as a nickname. Would like to call my next DD Dora but that bloody explorer girl is making it hard.

Cecy Sun 15-Jun-08 15:36:20

Ah yes, I remember the Wizadora programme. This soared hundreds of places in popularity name stats last year, which makes me hope it isn't going to be trendy at some point.
I'd use nickname Dora.

It comes into the "trying a bit too hard" category to my mind. It's okay but not delightful enough to make up for the inevitable Isadora Duncan references.

Flum Wed 25-Jun-08 22:03:09

\lurvvve Isadora. can't have it a boat we know got in ther first

notasheep Wed 25-Jun-08 22:06:35

DonnyLass Tue 15-Jul-08 23:13:29

its fabulous and classical

if you love it go for it or you;; always regrt it

tommiles001 Wed 16-Jul-08 07:22:46

Classic but kind of dated, with the -a ending. Popular at the beginning of the last century: baby name Isadora

How about Isis?
