Isabella, Isabella, Isabella! Sure, it's got the Twilight connection, which many would roll their eyes at, but it's also got several ties to Jane Austen, and its meaning is lovely, and Bella is just adorable. I don't care how popular it gets--I still love Bella! I'm probably biased because Isabelle nn Bella is my top choice for a girl. Anastasia I would have not minded, before 50 Shades of Gray (Grey?) came out, and ugh, I am just so put off by the books to seriously consider it ever again. I've never read the books, but the whole premise sounds just nausea-inducingly dumb, and I've heard that the writing/plot wasn't even that good. I don't really see the appeal, and now I think I'll forever associate Anastasia (and the nn Ana) with that. Before the trilogy came out, though, I never saw the appeal in Anastasia--it was too frilly and the only nn I really liked (the Russian Nastia) wouldn't really work here. I still like many other Anna/Ana names more. I just love Isabella. It's beautiful, and it always will be, despite the popularity.
