Just wondering what the consensus is on Isla?
I previously have dismissed it because it seemed really trendy, but I have to say... it seems to be leveling off a bit in trendiness. I haven't heard it mentioned as much as in the past couple of years, and it's hovering around the same popularity as one of my other choices: Eliza.
I have no idea if Dh will even go for it (he doesn't do well with non-intuitive pronunciations, but is teach-able. Though he can't prn. "aloe" correctly to save his life. Weirdo.), which leads me to my next question - is it popular enough now that the pronunciation is less of an issue in the US? It seems obvious to me.
I like that it's very different than our other choices - softer, breathier and more feminine. But still a bit quirkier than Ella, Bella, Ava, Lila, etc.
Definite top choices are:
Hazel June - dh's fav., but still a bit harsh to my ear.
and I'm still waiting for "the one" to strike me.
Thanks for thoughts in advance!
