Isabel is a girl's name of Spanish, Hebrew, and French origins, with various meanings such as "pledged to God," "God is my oath," and "God is perfection". The name first became prominent in southwest Europe during the Middle Ages, initially appearing in the form of the elegant Elizabeth. It was derived from the European name Elizabeth and spread throughout France, Portugal, and Spain in the 13th century. The name has a royal history, with notable bearers such as Isabella I, Queen of Castile and León. The origin of the name Isabel can be traced back to the Hebrew name Elisheba, which means "God is my oath". The name evolved into Elizabeth and was later used as a variation of the English name Elisabeth by changing the spelling. The name Isabel was first recorded in Paris in the late 11th century and soon spread throughout France, Portugal, and Spain over the 12th and 13th centuries.
