My cousin Isabelle is named for her grandmother Sarah. Of course Isabelle
sounds like Jezabel which is a biblical name, but you don't want to go that

Subject: Jewish name for Isabelle?

While all these posts are flowing about Yiddish or Hebrew names, I
thought this might be a good time to ask about my middle name. I was
named Joyce Isabelle. The Joyce was for my mgm, Sheina/ Jean, and the
Isabelle for my pgf, Isadore/ Yitzak. I was never given a Jewish
equivalent for the middle name. A rabbi once told me I could use
Elisheva, but that doesn't seem to sit right. Any thoughts?
