Etymology of the name YSEULTE.
Meaning of the baby name YSEULTE.


YSEULTE.  Arthurian.  French.  Of Germanic origin, probably from Ishild (q.v.), meaning "ice-fighter."  Also spelled Iseult.  Cf. Ysolte and Ysoude. (Journal of the American-Irish Historical Society, v.13, 1914)

... the Lady Yseulte was sent from her home in Ireland, under the escort of Tristram, to be married to King Mark, of Cornwall.  Her mother had entrusted a love potion to Yseulte's maid Brengwain to be given on the wedding night.
    A tempest arose on the voyage, and, in the consequent exhaustion, "Swete Ysonde, the fre, asked Brengwain a drink."  And Brengwain, bringing the magic cup by mistake, caused the fatal passion between Yseulte and the knight... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
