Did you know that Isabel is the Spanish version of Elizabeth? Take off the “El” and change “beth” to “bel,” and there you have it. Isabel has a load of sisters, including Isabelle (French), Isabella (England), Elisabete (Portuguese) and Zabel (Armenian). While Isabel isn’t as popular with American parents as the French version, it has been an important name since the Middle Ages. The first queen who school kids often learn about is Spain’s Isabel, who sponsored Christopher Columbus’ explorations far from home.
