This is most probably a name based on a short or pet form of another name. The original name could have been one of several possibilities.

The most likely is Isabel. This name is Spanish in origin, and has the same meaning as the Hebrew name Elizabeth, which means "God is my oath."

Isadora is also possible: this is a feminine form of the old Greek name Isidoros (gift of Isis) later Isidore.

The least common name is Isolde. Based on an old WElsh name Esyllt, this means "of fair appearance" and was popular in the Middle Ages because of the tragic tale of Tristan and Isolde.

These names are more typically shortened to Issy or Izzy, but occasionally there is Isa, which would be very similar to your name.
