    I think of Swann from Swann's Way (and the other volumes), so it feels like a man's name to me.

    Maybe you'd like Svana, which is an Icelandic girl's name meaning swan It's similar in sound, although the v is of course a bit harsher than the w.

    Just the other day I found the name Swanhild and fell in love with it. I don't really like Swan on it's own, but as a middle it is quite pretty. Since Isabeau Swan is a bit close to Isabella Swan {like you though, I've never read the books or even seen the movies}. What about pairing Swan with any of these names?

    Azélie {or even Azalea if it isn't too wordy for you}
    Boheme
    Althea
    Eulalie
    Naiara
    Aurélie
    Naomi

    Isabeau Forest is alright, but somehow I feel Forest disrupts Isabeau's charm.

    I think Isabeau Swan is lovely! Swan is such a wonderful nature name. Such lovely imagery.

    While Twilight is popular now I think the association will fade. Also, mostly your child isn't called by first and middle name all the time, so most people won't know her middle name and therefore won't think about the Twilight connection.

    Swans are beautiful, but the word itself doesn't sound so pretty to me.

    Yeah we have Svanhildur in Icelandic as well (and Svanhvít, Svanfríður, Svanborg, Svandís, etc etc). Of course Swanhild is German so it's pronounced Svan not Swan.
