  • "My name is Isabel and I think it is a strong name and all the women in my family who wear it are strong and have been inspirational in the rest. My maternal great-grandmother was Isabel and she lived well in health and with a lucid mind until she was 103 years old. The next Isabel is me and now I am 59 years old. Then Elsa Isabel - my cousin -, who is now 40 years old. I think that my character and my way of being have influenced my brothers and sisters, my cousins, nephews and nieces and also my friends. I have a niece named Isabelia, a niece-granddaughter named Alexandra Isabella, two friends called Isabel her youngest daughters in my honor. I am so happy with my name Isabel Marina."
