Thank you very much. They are mexican, but I think there is some french in the family, so this makes sense. I appreciate the help.

Eddy should be here, he's fluent in French. I know some, so I'll take a stab at it. First, the french Y, as in spanish, sounds like long E or double ee in English. First name is ee sah BO==surname- so LENN. I assume this person is a lady and it has been my experience that people of other languages are favorably impressed when you make an earnest effort to speak their tongue. Je ne parli' le Francais. (I don't speak French)
