> Isaline seems to be trendy in my country (France
). I don't know what it means or what's the origin, but it could be Isa
+ trendy ending line, or Isa
+ Line (French form of Lina
, pet form of Aline
, and so on).

To reply, here is the information i have ...
So, i've named my daughter Ysaline (with a Y) and i've done some search.
It seems that is a french name, gived to the french nobility in the last centuries
I've open a wikipedia page here:http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ysaline
Sorry, it is in French, but i can try to translate it for you:
Other form of the name: Isaline, Isalyne, Ysalis, Isoline, Ysoline, Yzaline, Izolina, Iseline, Yseult
First explanation: Isaline and Ysaline are coming from Isabelle
... a very common french name which come from Elisabeth
... In hebrew, the meaning of elisabeth is "God is my house" (elicheva ou El-Yah-Beth)
Second explanation (more for Ysaline than for Isaline i think) --> Ysaline --> Ysoline --> come from Ysoie which is the old french name of "Eusébie" (via the step "Eusoye"). There was 3 different Saints which was named Eusébie --> 3 Sainte Eusébie in France
) ... There is even a little village in france named "Sainte-Eusoye"
Eusébie come from Eusèbe (the french name ... same root than the more common spanish name Eusebio
) ... it comes from the greek and means "pious"
It is all the information i have :-)
If you have more information, free to you to give me your infos ... or to create the wikipedia page in english :-)
We have named our daughter Ysaline because a grand aunt was named Isoline --> we have done some search, and found than Isaline and Ysaline was beter ...Hope
