"Our daughter (2years old) is Isla and we just love the name, as do others that hear it. It's becoming more popular, at least in Canada, and it's popular in Scotland. We are in a very small town and another couple just named their baby Isla, so it's catching on. It was actually one of the names that Angelina was rumoured to have named one of her twins where there was a fake birth announcement." Oct. 13, 2008:
