I believe it's pronounced "Eez-old". I guess there is possible teasing potential because of the "old" part. But kids can make any name into something horrible to be honest. I had this name on my list for awhile..but in the middle spot.

I had no idea there were so many pronunciations of this name. I normally think of it as eez-uhld, but with super soft vowels. I think it is very usable. Since most people have probably never met an Isolde, yours can establish how to say it!
Follow up question for the people suugesting the original: do you pronounce the "t" in Iseult/Yseult or is it silent?若兰
