Isabel is generally considered a medieval Spanish form of Elizabeth and is a royal name in Spain and Portugal. Isabel and its variants (Isabelle, Isabella, Bella) are also extremely popular names topping all of the charts in recent years thanks in part to a little book called Twilight. It’s easy to see its appeal—it’s romantic, exotic and while not unique, a beautiful sounding name.
