Giselle is a girl’s name with French roots. The original spelling Gisѐle stems from the Germanic work gisíl, which means “pledge.” With its story dating back to 10th-century Normandy, this name is rich in history and culture. Although the name was in circulation around England during the 11th-century, it wasn’t until Adolphe Adam’s ballet of the same name hit the stage that Giselle began to circulate. Thanks to this, the beauty, innocence, and purity of the titular character can inspire Giselle to find the same gentle grace within herself.
