Meaning & History
Possibly derived from a Guanche word meaning "skeleton" or "bones". This was recorded as the name of a 6-year-old Guanche girl who was sold as a slave in Valencia in 1494. The name was revived in the Canary Islands in the 1970s. A current bearer is Itahisa Machado, an actress from Tenerife.
