It belongs to the category of given names that are derived from animal names, since Gela is derived from (or rather, a short form of) old Georgian given names that contain the Georgian noun მგელი (mgeli) meaning "wolf". Examples of such names are: Mgelia, Mgelika and Mgeluka. The latter two are probably diminutives of Mgelia.
