    I would say belle because it looks nicer and more feminine. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Belle! That’s what I’ve always dreamed of calling one of my imaginary future children with the name Isabel or Annabelle.

    My friend calls her Isabel Izzy.  It’s really cute.

    I love either of them. There would be a lot more personalized stuff (those pens and keychains, haha) with Belle, probably. Not that that is really that important, but it’s something to consider! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Why not just name her Belle intead of automatically shortening it? I purposely named my kids names that wouldn’t get nicknamed, and people did it anyway.

    I really don’t understand the logic of anticipating a nickname, let alone plan for one, when you could just as easily name them the version you like instead.

    Love Izzy for Isabel best but for sure Belle not Bel.

    If her name is Isabel, I would chose the nickname Bel.  It makes more sense.

    I’d go with Belle. It looks more complete somehow. Also, if she chooses to go by this nickname, every new person she meets will spell it Belle and life will be simpler in some small, but material way if she isn’t constantly correcting people or trying to ignore the errors.
