As sister to the French king Louis IX, Isabel of France could have lived a life of luxury and comfort. However, she opted to devote her life to God by refusing to marry, helping the sick and the poor, and founding a convent for Franciscan nuns. She retained her royal status but remained at the convent continuing to help the religious. Meaning "God is my oath," it's a pretty name that is a perfect choice for a baby girl.
