||Swiss Names by Shaymin
Bear in mind that Geneva, as well as some other parts of Switzerland have very mixed populations with lots of immigrants. So the unusual names might be non-Swiss originally. Most people in French Switzerland use French names, and German Swiss use German names. I can't pinpoint to any "typical" French Swiss names (and I've spent quite a lot of tme in the area. A google search of Isaltina would more bring to believe it's a Hispanic or Portuguese name (no idea of the etymology, though). The Romantch speakers have their own names but they're a minority
Ladino is another word used to designate Romantch.
