Yes I think so  .. "de" is a connective word as "from", "the" , "of" and identifies with the surname as a part of the surname.( Often bestowed, given, inherited or granted to an "Individual."   

This should not be confused with"dit" or "dite" which are very different IDENTIFIERS  in European, Nouvelle Francaise and Louisianne use and are used by FAMILY lines versus an INDIVIDUAL.

I would say yes.  In various countries they have a prefix to a surname eg. in South Africa - very common to find Van der Merve as a surname or Van der XXX.

Therefore Isabel and her surname is 'de Clare'.

The answer is: It depends.

If the profile is part of or qualifies for the Euro-Aristo project, then the Last Name At Birth (LNAB) is governed by the naming guidelines for the project, and the particle "de" is NOT include.

On the other hand, if the profile is not covered by the Euro-Aristo project, the guidelines do not apply.  So, someone born in 1800 could well have a LNAB of "de Clare."
