    can an Isobel not be Izzy?

    Isobel and s my favourite name for a girl but I highly dislike Izzy as I see it as a quite masculine because I know an Isaiah who goes by Issy and my brother Isaac gets it sometimes too. But I know many Isabella s and Isabels who are called Izzy/izzie/Issi. Is Izzy a definite nickname for Isobel or would they more likely be Bella which I love.

    Yeah, I think it is kind of inevitable, although Bella is probably a more likely nn. If you like the name so much as it is though, make a point of telling people that Isobel is the child's not Izzy/Bella/etc and you'd prefer it if they called her that. My mum never did it with me, but I now make a point of taking my time to respond if someone calls me Jess instead of Jessica. It's kind of rude of me, but I've told people I hate the nn and if they choose not to listen then that's their problem.
    Not expecting, just a girl with an interest in etymology.

    You can definitely encourage the use of Bella instead of Izzy. However, her little friends might use Izzy and she might like it.

    I know four little girls called Isobel/Isabelle/Isabel; one is an Izzy who also gets Zazie by family (Zazie-Belle by her dad which is adorable) one is a Bella, but the other two are 'just Isobel'.

    I don't think you have issues if you corrected people who shortened it. Or if you offered some alternative?
