Yvelisse, Ivelise and Ivelisse can be found around the world as variants of Yvelise.

Yvelise is known and used in France since 1951:

but, in Québec it is an ancient name attested by Jean-Claude Huriaux:

Usually, in France it is considered a creation from the root yv- (as in Yves or Yvain) and Élise or a variant of Yveline.

I don't know why Yvelise (and other spellings) are used in Puerto Rico and among othe Spanish speaking communities, but it seems another example of use of foreign names (often misspelled), known via films, books or tv-shows. Perhaps a character in a French film?
