    Default Different spellings for name of Isabella?

    Dh and I wants to name our girl Isabella.... that is if we have a girl... but I was wondering is there any unusual spelling of Isabella instead of the normal way of Isabella spelling? I just think that Isabella is a beautiful name and ever since I was a kid, I've always loved the name... but since the name is getting popular... I was wondering if there's a way to change the spelling of Isabella and be unquine but still the way how you pronouce Isabella.

    Ysabella My girlfriend's little girl, Bella, spells hers that way. I believe it's a Latino spelling, but I could be wrong.

    I had never heard of any other spellings. However, I could live with Isabela as ange84 suggested, but that is about it. With that said, I am not a huge fan of different spellings. Just me though. Good luck!!

    This is my personal opinion only, obviously it's your kid and you have full authority on what you want to name her, but I feel unique names and unique spellings are stupid and make my eyes want to bleed. I appreciate the same name may be spelled differently in different cultures, that is fine, but otherwise I think the potential is there for a unique name to be more of a burden than an asset.

    For example, whether you name your daughter Mackenzie or Makkynzi, when you have 2 kids in the same class whose names are pronounced exactly the same, they will still be Mackenzie F. and Makkynzi J. so I don't see how it's really differentiating your child from another with the "same" name. In fact, I think you've given your child the worst of both worlds. You're not giving them a unique name, rather its a common name but the strange spelling will result in them having it to spell it out again and again, and still having it misspelled.

    I do speak from experience. I myself have an original name, and after years and years of having it mispronounced and misspelled, I have renamed myself with a more recognizable name of Belle.


    ETA: I do think Isabella is a beautiful name though, and is lovely spelled exactly like that .

    sorry op, I agree with pp. if you give your kid a weird, I mean unique spelling they will always have to say, "No it's M-y-k-k-y-n-Z, Mykkyn Z, not Mackenzie...." just leave Isabella as it is. I would also suggest staying away from Isolde

    I think Isabella is going to be spelling her name for lots of people anyway. I know that is the one commonly excepted spelling, but lets face it people aren't always that bright and she'll probably need to spell it lots.

    I sort of like Izabella.

    I'm a big fan of traditional spellings. Classy and dignified. Isabella is a lovely name and a lovely spelling. Your child doesn't need to have a uniquely spelled name to be a one of a kind person.

    Personally I think that giving your child a unique name even if it is spelling a common name differently. It is a personal choice of the person. Then again uniquely spelled names are commone in my family. I have a big family with loads of cousins. One is names Kailure "Kaylor" and we also have a Ryleigh "Riley" Its a personal choice as to how a person spells a name. Me personally there are alot of very beautiful names out there but I just plain out dont like the way most people spell them. As for people misspelling names over their lifetime people misspell my name anytime they write it the first couple times. For some reason they wanna spell it "Kindra" or "Kendera" So I don't see a problem with it.
