The name Isabel was originally an Old Provençal form of Elizabeth; while it soon became treated as an independent name, the connection between the two was still known in England as late as the 16th C, where there are examples of the same woman being recorded as both Elizabeth and Isabel (see Withycombe s.n. Isabel(la)). The pet forms Eb(b)ot(t)(a) and Ib(b)ot(t)(a) can be diminutives of both Elizabeth and Isabel.
