I wouldn't use a spelling variation because of popularity. Isabelle, Isobel and Isabel are all said the same. But I might choose Isabelle to get the nn Belle, for example, as it works better with the longer ending. Equally, I might choose one of the other two to try and avoid it. Or I might choose the O because all my other children have O's in their names and I find it a nice link, or Isabel to honour Great Uncle Abel. There are plenty of reasons for choosing one spelling over another, but popularity wouldn't be one.
