User comments for Ailsa (Meaning / History Only)

The meaning you have I don't think is right. I am called Ailsa and I think it means fairy, and it can mean rock, so it means fairy rock.

I've also read that Ailsa Craig's origin is Gaelic Aillse Creag, which means "fairy island".

'Modern Scottish name from Ailsa Craig, a rocky islet in the Clyde estuary off Ayrshire coast. Derived from Old Norse-Viking Alfisigesy "island off Alfsigr"; composed of alf "supernatural being, elf" + sigi "victory". Possible anglicization of Ealasaid. Ailsa Craig is known in Gaelic as Allasa, or Creag Ealasaid. Form of Elsa from Hebrew Elizabeth, "consecrated to God."'
