    Which of these spellings would be less hassle?

    Hi there.

    I am wondering which combo would be less hassle spelling wise.

    The combos to choose from are...
    Lucy Isabel
    Lucy Isabelle
    Lucy Isobel
    Lucie Isabel
    Lucie Isabelle
    Lucie Isobel

    For Lucy/Lucie... I love both spellings now however my boyfriend vastly prefers Lucie.

    Isabel/Isabelle... We both like these spellings. Isabelle more me and Isabel more my boyfriend.

    Isobel... We both love this spelling but we pronounce Isobel differently to Isabel and Isabelle. We emphasize the O sound. Is this the correct pronunciation or are we just setting her up for having to correct people?

    Any thoughts?

    Also would you mind commenting on which spellings look the nicest together?

    Thanks all.

    I think the Lucy spelling is the way to go. With Lucie you would have to be constantly correcting people. As for the middle I think all three would be perfectly fine. I prefer Lucy Isobel. I think it looks and sounds beautiful and tailored!

    Lucy Isabel is the cleanest out of all your options IMO. A gorgeous combination.

    Isabel or Isabelle would be the easiest but it’s also a middle name, so it won’t have to be spelled all that often. I vastly prefer Isabel because it looks cleaner.

    I think Lucy would be easiest but if your partner prefers Lucie, I don’t think it will be a hassle. She’ll have to correct people but it’s likely she’d have to anyways. I correct people all the time and Abby is the most common spelling.

    Lucy Isabelle or Lucy Isobel (with the o emphasised) would be the least hassle for me

    I personally would go with Lucy Isabel or Lucy Isobel. I’m guessing most, at least in the states, would assume the Lucy spelling. I would not assume any spelling with Isabel/Isobel/Isabelle. I would ask the person. Not difficult or an issue.

    I would also go with Lucy Isabel or Lucy Isabelle. I believe these are the most intuitive spellings.

    I think it depends where you live. If someone said the name to me I would write Lucy Isabelle. I'm in UK though.

    To me Lucy Isabel looks the most appealing and straight-forward.

    Where I live (UK), Isobel is pronounced exactly the same as Isabel - IZ-uh-bel.

    Lucy Isabel would be easiest, but I think all of the spellings you are considering are legitimate and would work well enough. I love the Lucie and Isobel spellings.
