Hi Si312, Isela is probably short for either Elizabeth/Elisabeth or Isabella (and variants, like Isabel). Isabella and Elizabeth are themselves related. As such, it means "devoted to God" or "God's Oath". Here is the most complete definition of Isela that I could find online: http://baby-names.yeahbaby.com/baby.php?name=Isela BabyNamer also includes an entry for Isela: http://tools.oxygen.com/babynamer/TypeASearch.cfm?Gender=G&Unique=1&TellMeAbout=isela This page suggests that this is a Spanish or Russian derivative of Isabella. And entries for Isabella and Elizabeth: http://baby-names.yeahbaby.com/baby.php?name=Isabella http://baby-names.yeahbaby.com/baby.php?name=Elizabeth BabyNamer also has some information about Isabella and Elizabeth: http://tools.oxygen.com/babynamer/TypeASearch.cfm?Gender=G&Unique=4&TellMeAbout=isabella http://tools.oxygen.com/babynamer/Content.cfm?ContentTypeID=1000&NameID=17217&BabySiteID=10623873 Isela could also be related to Ixchel, which is French/Mayan for the goddess of fertility and the moon: http://baby-names.yeahbaby.com/baby.php?name=Ixchel It could also be short for Gisela, which means "pledge" and is Germanic in origin (though also popular in French as Giselle): http://tools.oxygen.com/babynamer/Content.cfm?ContentTypeID=1000&NameID=18560&BabySiteID=10623873 http://baby-names.yeahbaby.com/baby.php?name=Giselle I hope these links allay your curiosity about this name - please don't hesitate to ask for more information if you need it!

That was definitely helpful. I did a few searches for baby names (Isela) on google but came up empty handed. Wish their was more info specific to the name Isela but if it's a derivative of another name, then that explains the lack of information. Thanks.
