    Isolde?

    I promise no more posts from me!! I just have one last questions NBers!!

    What do you think of the name Isolde? Also spelled Iseult. Pronounced "Eee-zoult" or "Eee-zould". (I've heard/seen both in history/literature). Correct me if I'm wrong, but opinions please! Thanks so much!

    I have always known it pronounced "Eee-zould" in the tale of Tristan (my son's name) and isolde. In in other spelling, the "T" is silent.

    I like it! It isn't the type of name that I am usually attracted to, but it has really been growing on me and now I think it's beautiful.
    I like it spelled both ways, 'Iseult' is the older, more traditional version, but 'Isolde' has a more familiar feeling because of the story of "Tristan and Isolde". I don't know which I like better.
    It is an unusual name that's not too far 'out there' with an intriguing history.
