My SO is Swiss so I have a lot of contact with Swiss people. I went browsing through the Swiss Newspapers the other day and they had a lot of birth announcements. In the German
Swiss front, I saw a lot of interesting and unusual names I would like to get more info on. I saw the female name Jara several times, used as both a first and middle name. It was sometimes spelled Yara. I also saw the female name Ladina. I read somewhere it was Romantch, if so, then I'm guessing its just a form of Latina, but if anyone has any more info, I'd appreciate to hear it. I saw several baby girls named Romea (I'm guessing that this might also be a Romantch name, and I saw several baby boys named Corsin and Nevio
, both of which I'd like to get more info on. The most unusual and intriguing name of all, however, was the female name Isaltina. It was in a Geneva
birth announcement (the French speaking area of Switzerland). I am just wondering if anyone has any idea what the etymology of Isaltina is.
