    I have a feeling that we are having a girl ive been lookig at a few girly names!
    Me and my boyfriend have decided on Isobel for a girl! Such a beautiful name! But not sure in which way to spell it, we will call her belle for short so I though Isobelle, but I love just Isobel!
    So.. Isobel or isobelle?

    Thanks ladies!!xxxx

    I love Isobel. It was on my list for a girl, but we went with Phoebe. It's still on the list if I ever have another girl :) x

    My nieces name is Isabelle, I think it's the French way of spelling it? Like Pos says if you are going to call her Belle it would be good to have that in her name maybe. We call our Isabelle, Izzie :) Whichever way you spell it, it is a beautiful name xxx

    My SIL is called Annabel and we call her Bel for short.

    I prefer Isobel because it's the traditional spelling

    my OHs niece is Isobel.. But when they shorten her name they write Bell.

    My names Danielle but growing up my mum would always have a double NN is writing Danni!
    It doesnt bother me either way Dani or Danni.

    Isobel is lovely tho hun :) xx

    I've cared for an Isobel and an Isabelle.

    I prefer Isabelle with an A and the extra LE on the end but if you prefer Isobel then go for it! x

    Love Isobel, was on my list too but a good friend had her baby first and called her Isobel. That spelling will be easier for a little girl to learn too.
