How do you get daughter of Isis from Isa?
"daughter of Isis" is "sat / sit Aset" in classic and "benet Aset" in modern Egyptian.
Isis is the Greek form, Egyptians called her Aset - just like Joan of Arc is the English form but French people call her Jeanne d'Arc (modern form of the Old French Jehanne Darc).
Meret (more commonly Merit / Meryt) is indeed "beloved".

edit to add: Lilith is no good idea: http://www.jewfaq.org/women.htm#Lilith
