Hello, my is Ivelisse and I am from Puerto Rico. Ivelisse is a French origin name, from the island of Corsica in the south of France. The Corsicans who immigrate to the island settle in the south of Puerto Rico: Yauco. The French influence greatly our food, names, music, the needlework, and a lot more. I was traveling at one time and I meet a girl her name was Ivelisse also and she worked at the airport. She told me that she meet a french gentleman who recognize the name immediately. He explain that Ivelisse is a name to a flower that grows in the south of France and this plant is related to the jasmine flowers. This is what I been told by her. I know for sure the origin of the name is Corso, and the aristocrats name their daughters Ivelisse. In the south of Puerto Rico there is a lot of French last names, French descendants families from Corsica. I know personally the descendants of the doctor who made Napoleon Bonapart death mask at the time of Napoleon death; Dr. Antommarchi. The Antommarchi family Corsican French descendants lived in Yauco, Puerto Rico and the death mask of Napoleon Bonapart is in an exhibit for everyone to enjoy at the New York Museum. Eugene Percy Antommarchi-Antongeorjin told me that the mask belongs to the Antommarchi family. Well, this is the root of our name "Ivelisse" there has been many changes and many variations to it in time but, the original one is "Ivelisse". My grandmother who was born at the end of 1800 was the one who name me, and I love her for that. Every place I travel people love my name and find it very unique. I am 55 years old and this name is been around for a long, long time. The French settle in the island when Spain allow Europeans of no Spanish origin to come to the island, to stop the pro-independence movement from Spain. The French settle during the late 1700, as they swore to be loyal to the Spanish Crown. Consequently, Puertorricans have Spanish, French, Black, and Indian mix originally. As time went by Germans, English and Dutch came and settle in the island too. This days Puertorricans are mix even more, one of many examples; my daughter is half Puertorrican half Dutch from Holland. Puertorrican history is very rich and interesting, and I encourage everyone to read about our roots. Thank you kindly, Ivelisse
