Also Estonian (albeit archaic):
Gisella Delle Grazie (born 1 June 1868; fl. 1894–95) was an Italian composer born in Trieste. Delle Grazie composed two operas, Atala (I Pellirossa), premiered at the Teatro Balbo in Turin in 1894, and La trecciaiuola di Firenze, premiered at the Teatro Filodrammatico in Trieste in 1895.
Gisella Sofio (19 February 1931 – 27 January 2017) was an Italian actress. Born in Milan, Sofio started her career at the age of 16 as a model. In 1951 she began her acting career in Mario Mattoli's film "Accidents to the Taxes!". Since then she had a prolific career as an actress in theatres, movies, and television, working with directors like Michelangelo Antonioni, Luigi Comencini and Pupi Avati.
I think it's pronounced Khi-Zell-lah. I think it's a nice and friendly name.
Gisella (jee-ZEL-la) is very rare for newborns but is still used. In 2016 were born less than five babies with this name.
The Italian pronunciation of "Gisella":


The "G" is not hard-- think of a "J." Stress your "I" to "EE." Next we see an "S" between two vowels, which automatically creates a "Z" instead of an "S" sound. "E" equals very near to "Hey" (excluding the "H"). Keep in mind the importance of pronouncing both "LL"s-- most easily accomplished by placing an added emphasis on the letter before ("E") and slowly rolling through, lingering, both "LL"s until rounding off with the final "A" (said as in "Father"). [noted -ed]
I don't like this name too much. I think it undermines the beauty of the original form of this name.
