Let's talk about Isla!
What do you all think about the name Isla?
I’ve recently done a bit of spring cleaning with my list, and a couple of my old favorites are out (Rachel, Lillian, and Hannah, although I’m sort of missing Lillian and Hannah), which potentially opens some room for new favorites, since I can’t seem to eliminate any of my boys’ favorites, and I’m not sure I’m in favor of an uneven list.
I’ve been seriously thinking about Isla lately, and I feel like it could suit my style really well. WDYT of it? Is it too trendy? I’m not too worried about pronunciation issues–it’s been around long enough to be familiar–or at least, I would hope so by now, anyway. I am slightly worried I couldn’t have an Isabelle and an Isla, even though the pronunciations are so different (is-ah-belle, eye-lah). WDYT? If I use Isabelle, is Isla totally unusable? I’m really loving Isla Felicity and Isla Rosamund lately, but I don’t really want to get attached to it, if it’s too similar to Isabelle… For what it’s worth, if I do have an Isabelle, she’d likely be Bella/Isabelle/Issy almost equally. Does Issy as a nn put it into the unusable category, with Isabelle?
