Difficult to say without more details (language, spelling in an Indian language or at least gender of the name). But, since your name is Sanskrit, here goes a Sanskrit analysis:
e'Sa, pronounced esha (e like in English take, sh is a retroflex S, i.e. roll up your tongue as if to say t in English take as you say S instead, and a short a as in English cut; stress on the first syllable) is cognate with old high german `era' and a masculine word meaning the act of seeking, an wish, or an option, and is already used in the Rgveda. It is often used infra compound, but I have started hearing its feminine form (only the last syllable gets lengthened to A as in English car) as an independent name.
