Reply to: Isela (origin) by edenrowe
In Spanish, Isela is a Latin American variant of Icela, a nickname for Maricela. In Spain, Icela is pronounced ee-THEL-a, and Isela is ee-SEL-a, but in Latin America they are both pronounced ee-SEL-a, which explains the spelling change. Maricela can be written as Marisela in Latin America because of this.

Edit: Just remembered Maricela and Icela can also be written Marizela and Izela (albeit rarely) in Latin America, with the same pronunciation.
