Isla Fisher & Her Lil’ Ballerinas

Isla Fisher and her girls Olive, 4, and Elula, 2, were seen leaving a ballet class in Los Angeles, Calif. on Wednesday (August 29). Later on the actress took Olive to get frozen yogurt at Pinkberry.

Isla’s new film The Bachelorette opens this Friday. Based on the Off-Broadway play – the story is about three young bridesmaids who accidentally destroy the bride-to-be’s wedding dress.

Talking about her co-stars Kirsten Dunst and Lizzy Caplan back in January – Isla said she felt “uncool.”

Mentioning that she saw them smoking and drinking in the morning – she said, “Oh, god. I just put my 17-month down for a nap and my 4-year-old is off to preschool! I felt like the uncool mom.”

  1. I’m still confused on how to pronounce the little one’s name. Is it E-lu-la (Eee-loo-lah)? I agree that it is an awful name, not the biggest fan of Olive either. But, that’s why they’re the parents; they can name them whatever they want. So somebody tell, is it E-Lu-la?

    • I think it’s said like “Elle -ula”.

      I really love this whole family.
      I’ve loved Isla since I was watching her on ‘Home and away’ in the late 90’s, and Sacha is one of the funniest and most original comediens around.

      Their girls are super cute, and are the same ages as my two little girls- who are also little ballerinas! 🙂

    • I’m pretty sure it’s pronounced Ay-lu-lah. I remember reading that somewhere when her name was first released, but I may be wrong. I actually think it’s super cute – not something I would use, but whimsical and pretty in its own way.

      • it’s not pronounced ay-lu-lah it’s e-loo-la because the name is from the jewish month e-lul (august-september) and i assume that she was born then.

  2. The name Elula seems to be one that Isla and Sacha made up. Elul is a month on the Hebrew calendar that corresponds to late August/early September on the English calendar. Today is the16th of Elul, 5772.

    Elula seems to have been born during Elul, which is pronounced EL-lool, with the accent on the first syllable. I would guess her name is pronounced EL-lool-LAH, with accents on the first and last syllable. I’m guessing because, despite being a Jewish religious educator, I’ve never heard the name before. I suppose though that it would be like naming a girl born in August, Augusta.
