"My name is Isabel and I feel so lucky. Just looking at the name makes me feel happy because it's so pretty. It is misspelled as Isabelle a lot which is annoying because that spelling is so over the top, trying too hard to be French. I also get called Isabella a lot by strangers. But everyone closest to me loves my name, and i am called Bel for short which I love. I am 17 and have always been the only Isabel at the three schools i have been to." Oct. 30, 2017:
