A zero mode quantization of the minimal energy SU(2) Skyrmions for nucleon numbers four to nine and seventeen is described. This involves quantizing the rotational and isorotational modes of the configurations. For nucleon numbers four, six and eight the ground states obtained are in agreement with the observed nuclear states of Helium, Lithium and Beryllium. However, for nucleon numbers five, seven, nine and seventeen the spins obtained conflict with the observed isodoublet nuclear states.
