Ailsa is a name which can be used for both boys and girls, and is of Gaelic origin. The name comes from a place name, the Island Ailsa Craig in Scotland. The original Gaelic name of the island is Craig Ealasaid which means ‘Elizabeth’s Rock’. Although the root name is specifically feminine, the place name took on associations of its own and so many boys were also named Ailsa, after the island.
