    Both names are beautiful. I prefer Guinevere, although reading fast I thought it was Genevieve. Isabelline is a mouthful for me. I'm not usually a fan of nicknames, but I feel like I would have to give a nn to Isabelline.

    Both are quite lovely. Isabelline is more fragile and gentle, it reminds me of a delicate flower. It's very unique, but recognizable because of it's relation to Isabelle. However, for those reasons, people might mistake it for Isabelle.

    Guinevere is more of a classic, but has a harsher sound. It is also very unique but probably more known. It would age well through life and has the cute nicknames 'Guin' and 'Vivi'.

    I'd have to say I prefer Isabelline, but both are wonderful choices!

    Definitely Guinevere - Isabelline is far too close to Isabella and Isabelle for me, I feel as though the 'ine' would be dropped/contracted to Isabelle/Isabell far too often, and there would be too many repeats of 'no, it's Isabell-EEN, not Isabelle.'
