Madeleine.

I have to give popularity as my reason ... Isabella is starting to grate on my nerves because every pregnant woman I meet gushes about it and how perfect it is. That and Emma. Any like I had for them (and I used to!) is down the drain.

Aside from that, Madeleine sounds like either a perky little girl or an independent, free-spirited woman. I like that I can imagine it on both age groups, and that it sounds good (to me) on both.

I prefer Isabella because there are WAYYYY too many Maddies in this world, what with Madison and all it's misspellings and then Madeleine, Madeline, Madelyn, etc. Plus all the Addies! Ugh! Enough already.

I like Isabella but don't care for the nickname Izzy.
As per the other one, I prefer it spelled Madeline, not Madeleine or Madelyn, or Maddeline. Maddie is cute but very popular now.

I like Isabella better as a full name but I like the nn Maddie better than Issy. I like the nn Bella better for Isabella.

I find both of those names terribly overused but if I had to pick, I'd choose Madeleine and use the full name not Maddie. I think it sounds more classic.

I used to not like the sound of Isabella at all, but now I like it a lot; I love the "Bella" at the end, so feminine to me. So I would say Isabella. Madeleine reminds me of the movie--- I like Madelyn better. I guess Isabella and Madelyn are more "softer" names.

I love Isabella. Belle is a family name and I would love to use it. However, Isabella is too "sing song" with our last name. It would seriously sound like a song if you put it together. But I do love the name.

Both names are FAR too popular right now.

I really love them both though, but I don't think I could use either of them because of their popularity. They're both nice though. Good luck!
