Isla is Islay, in the context of Scottish islands. And whisky (it's my middle name). My sister's middle name is Iona, and I always like that they match.

I hope op realises a lot of the posters here are taking the proverbial and that many of the suggestions are ridiculous

Gla don't get your post?

Morayshire is a place the county is Moray. Suggested Murray as in the surname alternative to Moray.

Don't do it Foxy - you will be disappointed (probably).
