of the river Islay

ORIGIN:Scottish
POPULARITY:205
Pronounced EYE-la, this girls' name references Isla, a river in Scotland, as well as Islay, a Scottish island. It’s a super-popular name in Scotland and in other English-speaking countries like England, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. But only in the last 10 years has the name become a hit in the US. Maybe it was because of the box office success of “Wedding Crashers,” a 2005 comedy featuring actress Isla Fisher, that made people notice her pretty name.

Royal Baby Names
Isla is the daughter of Peter Phillips, Queen Elizabeth II’s eldest grandchild, and his wife, Autumn; she’s also the granddaughter of Anne, the Princess Royal. Born on March 29, 2012 (the year the queen celebrated her 60-year reign on the British throne), Isla was given the middle name Elizabeth. She’s 15th in the line of succession to the British throne. Like her dad and big sister, Savannah, Isla has no royal title. When she was christened a few months after birth, she was the latest royal baby to wear a replica of a gown made for one of Queen Victoria’s daughters in 1841.
