A royal name, Isabella is feminine and romantic. It’s the Italian and Spanish version of Elizabeth that originated during the Middle Ages. As Elizabeth made its way through Spain, Italy and Provence, France, it became Isabeth, then Isabeau and Isabel, before morphing into Isabella and Isabelle. Isabella reached England in the 13th century and was considered interchangeable with Elizabeth for generations. Nicknames such as Isa, Bella and Izzy have added to its appeal, landing it in the top 10 and top 3. Twilight fans will remember Isabella (or Bella) Swan.
