Gisela is an elegant and refined name, I really like how it sounds and I like Giselle too. However the meaning "hostage" is pretty creepy.

I believe the Spanish pronunciation is: [hee-SAY-lah]

"hee" rhymes with the word "see"
"say" is like the word "say" and rhymes with "day"
"ah" is like the "o" in "lot".

This is my favourite Aunt's name, but she generally goes by her nickname Zella. I'd definitely consider it for my own child, it's such a pretty name.

To the person who said it reminded them of a gazelle: jiz-ELL-ah. NOT Gazelle-ah or however it seems. Pshh, if you want to be entirely rude make sure it seems at least slightly relevant.

Why would someone give a little girl a name meaning "hostage"? What an awful meaning! And the pronunciation (geese-ah-lah) and spelling remind me of two rather dumb animals- the goose and the gazelle. Geese are loud and dirty, and gazelles always get eaten by lions. Also sounds like something African Americans would give a kid to try and sound like the African animal, which would be typically stupid. Therefore, the name to me says "dirty loud bird/dumb lion chow deer/hostage". No go!

When I hear this name the following come to mind: Beautiful, sexy/exotic, unique, feminine yet strong; It has both a formal yet casual quality. Gisela is simply a great name for any girl/woman.
