Sorry, also here Ilse is ultimately a diminutive from Elisabeth:
According to the following site, the German town Ilsenburg originally was called "Elysynaburg"

So this would mean, that Ilse is from Elysyna. I found given names Elysyna and Elysyn, Elysyn also in use as a surname. I did not find the meaning and origin, but it's probably a form of Elise, which is a short form of Elisabeth.
