I don't dislike Olive, but I still vote for Isla by a million miles.

I really really dislike Isla. It's such a fad. Olive is not a name I would choose either but it's nice enough and goes well with your sons name also.

I think olive is lovely. Isla looks strange I think and doesnt sound that good either. It really surprises me so many people like it.

Of those two spelled those ways, I think Olive would be easier to explain to my family and stuff. And its phonetic. I would prefer Opal though.

Olive would get my vote, but I like them both original.gif

I am biased as my daughters name is Isla....although i was named after my Grandma Olive...but they named me Olivia...my grandma always hated her name and preferred when our italian relatives called her Olivia.

Isla & Zander sound great together!

Hope this helps!

Funny I know 2 gorgeous little girls, sisters, named Olive and Isla. I love them both! I think Olive goes better with Xander as a sibset though.
