elifsu Says:


Ee-suh is how it is pronounced in Turkey and I assume in Arabic too? Eye-sa feels feminine

Chae-Eun Says:


Both. If they have a full verson (Isabel or Isaac, for instance), it matters. If not, not really. I know an EE-sah, though.

katinka Says:


Lovely, simple, striking name, but I'm slightly put off because it looks just like ISA (Individual Savings Account). Is it pronounced the same ("EYE-suh")? Or is it "EE-suh"?
