Isotta is the Italian form of Isolde, a name of uncertain origin though it’s believed to have Celtic roots or it may come from a Germanic name made up of is (ice, iron) and hild (battle) meaning “ice battle” or “iron battle”. In Arthurian legend, Isolde is the name of several figures including an Irish princess who fell in love with Tristan, the nephew of the man she was betrothed to.
