Meaning:To be gazed at, one who is beautiful; Iron ruler
Ysolda is a form of Isolda, a name used throughout Europe yet whose roots are somewhat of a mystery. Inspired by Iseult, a possible ancestor of Ysolda is the Welsh Esyllt, an incredibly flattering appellation meaning “who is gazed at” and “the beautiful one.” Layering on the charm are Ysolda’s German roots, thought to be from Ishilde or Iswalde, meaning “iron ruler.” Ysolda’s impressive double meaning lends a name replete with confidence and bravery—not to mention its captivating chime.
