Isis is derived from 'aset' meaning 'throne' in ancient Egyptian. The goddess was named after the headdress she wore - the symbol for 'throne'.

Isis was the goddess of a lot things having to with women: childbirthing, motherhood, etc.

Isis is pronounced as "EEs-iss" in Swedish, and I think in most non-English languages.
Ylva  9/29/2005
This name is very used for Egyptian people. And you see that name a lot for Egyptian characters. And I know that in the ancient Egyptian time a powerful women was named like that. And I love it a lot and it's meaning to.

This is the name of a fellow student in my acting class. I've never asked what her ethnicity is, but she appears to be Hispanic. We all introduced ourselves by name at the beginning of the semester, and after she introduced herself, I remarked aloud that Isis is "one of the coolest names ever."

Absolutely beautiful, has great origins, I shall be using this name.
Nobody  9/1/2006
This is one of my favorite names; it's beautiful on it's own, and the goddess this name comes from is very strong and feminine. She's the goddess of many things, and is one of the most powerful of all the gods and godesses in ancient Egyptian mythology. I'd definitely consider this name for a child. There was also an Egyptian character named Isis in the anime series Yuugiou.

My name is Isis and it is pronounced eez-eez, I am Italian.
RainbowSerpent  4/4/2007
I am in LOVE with this name. I think it is beautiful for a little girl and grows well with them into adulthood. I prefer the spelling Isys though.
jaimej  7/2/2007
I think Isis is a pretty name.
violetagate  8/10/2007
In my opinion, Isis is an elegant and classy name for a girl. If I ever would change my name, it would be this name.
aquaspirit96  12/28/2007
Isis is an alternative name for the Thames river around Oxford England.
AndrewJKD  4/13/2008
Too hippy for real life, but a beautiful Egyptian mythology name and one of those names you just love. I gave it to my beautiful kitten.

Isis is a transgender contestant on the show America's Next Top Model.
bibi66  8/16/2008
Intriguing name, yet there is some unknown reason which prevents me from ever wanting to name a kid this. It just irks me.
GunsnRoses8794  11/23/2008
This name is so exotic and beautiful! It's ethereal, feminine, classy and unique. Makes me wish my parents had thought of it!
― Anonymous User  12/6/2008
This name is really exotic and pretty! It reminds me of ice. I would name twin girls Isis and Crystal.

The Dutch pronunciation is EE-sis.

In the mid '70's there was a cool TV show called "Isis." It was about a young woman, Andrea Thomas (played by JoAnna Cameron), who found an ancient, Egyptian amulet that could turn her into Isis. As the goddess, she fought evil and helped those in trouble. DC Comics bought the rights to the character and included her in some of their story lines.
breakofday  7/30/2009
I think this is a beautiful name for a cat.
Kaat5  2/23/2010
Isis the goddess. I like this name and I think it would be a brilliant idea to name a child Isis. Pagans would definitely consider it. It doesn't hurt to be unique.

I'm afraid that I can never use this name because Isis, the trans gender, from cycle 11 of America's Next Top Model.

I love this name! I wish I could be named this:)
― Anonymous User  10/21/2010
I really love it. So beautiful and royal-sounding. One of my friends has a daughter named Bethany Isis, and I find that a very nice combo.
Black_X  7/12/2011
I find Isis too difficult to pronounce, especially for those who have lisps. I prefer Iris for that reason.
Dawson  7/30/2011
Catwoman has a black cat named Isis. Ive always wanted to do the same! >X3

Isis is the name of the dog in Downton Abbey.
lizanna86  1/24/2013
Cool name for a husky! For a person... Not so much.
― Anonymous User  1/24/2013
I think Isis is one of the coolest and most individual names out there. It's unlikely for you to meet more than one Isis in your life, so it's easy to remember them. If you were to name your daughter Isis there is no doubt that she won't have to go by Isis M. or Isis C. (or whatever your last initial is). The name Isis makes me envision a smart, exotic, pretty, and cynical type of girl, like someone with the personality of Megara from Disney's Hercules.
avengingangelx3  6/17/2013
It's not a very sturdy name anyways... To be honest, it sounds like a porn star's name. Why not go for Iris instead?
― Anonymous User  7/30/2013
I do love the sound of this name but it feels a bit overused.
Emmettsmomma2010  11/8/2013
This is an unusual name for an individual to possess. The IE-sis pronunciation could be an alternative to Iris.
― Anonymous User  7/30/2014
I just want to add that what I meant by this name's pronunciation being an alternative to Iris, I meant the NAME could be an alternative to the name Iris and that the pronunciation is different (of course) THOUGH it's sort of similar sounding, which is perfect for those who like this kind of sound.

As commented by Ylva before me, it's also pronounced EE-sees or EES-ees in other languages such as Spanish.
bomboalos16  8/15/2014
Looks like the terrorist organization has trashed this name.
PinkJazzX  9/18/2014
I think there might be a number of people called Isis who will wish they had been called Iris. Time will tell if Isis becomes a shunned name like Adolf and (in the UK) Myra, but at present this Australian girl's experiences may be commonplace:
Just Jonquil  10/22/2014
I have a 5 year old daughter named Isadora (meaning: Gift of Isis) and Isis is me and my husband's nickname for her.

Some people have asked me to change her nickname because of the terrorist group. Can't the BBC just say the I.S.?

I absolutely adore this name and I don't care what others think. This is a magical, ethereal name- why is there such a negative association with it?!
― Anonymous User  12/31/2014
Such a pity the terrorists are called ISIS. I agree with the person above me, why can't the media call them IS?

It's such a lovely, pretty name, only time will tell if it becomes shunned by society.
sazzlesarah  2/26/2015
Thanks a lot, ISIS. Now I feel really awkward using this name.
ComradeJocasta  5/8/2015
My daughter is called Isis, she's 10. She's unaware of the media negativity associated with her name at present.

I feel the media should use their proper name Islamic state - IS
Such a beautiful name which has been ruined by media.
― Anonymous User  6/26/2015
Sorry to all the Isis's out there - it's a beautiful name and I'm sorry that grotesque group is dragging it through the mud. Wish the media would just refer to them as something else.
silly_rabbit  8/24/2015
It's so sad that this name is unusable now. If only more people knew about the Egyptian goddess. :(
― Anonymous User  9/17/2015
I apologize if you really love or have this name, but it is completely unusable. If you don't have knowledge of politics or news, you probably don't know that ISIS is actually a terrorist group. Unless you want that connotation attached to your child, do not use this name. It's kind of like naming your kid Adolf.
actingfun  10/7/2015
I used to think this was such a great name, and it is, but the association with the terrorist organization really plagues it. I mean, imagine being called Nazi? It really sucks that such malevolent groups can have so much control over good things. >:(
― Anonymous User  12/1/2015
Even with the terrible connotations, I still do like this name. I hope someday it will become a reasonable name again, and the terrorist group won't tarnish it forever.

(And hopefully it'll become decent soon enough that I can use it for a child, or at least a character).
― Anonymous User  12/9/2015
Due to the idiotic terrorist group of "Isis" I can see this name declining rapidly in popularity and soon being off of the top 1000 name charts. I guarantee it. No big loss because in my opinion, the name "Isis" wasn't decent to begin with.
― Anonymous User  1/11/2016
Sorry that evil in this world has ruined such a beautiful name.
Zoe Papillon  1/30/2016
I plan on naming my daughter IsisRené. I will not let the media tarnish the beautiful meaning behind this name.
choward150  2/17/2016
Not only was Isis the wife of Osiris, she was also the sister.
sandamy27  2/27/2016
Funny that several people have suggested the name "Iris" as an alternative to "Isis". Iris is a type of flower. Isis is the name of a Goddess. The two names have nothing in common except for three of four letters.
sandamy27  2/27/2016
Iris is actually the name of the Roman goddess of the rainbow, not just the flower, so it is a very nice suggested alternative to Isis. I do like the name Isis though, and it's a shame the transliteration choice has ruined it for much of the west.
― Anonymous User  12/26/2016
The terrorist group is ISIL or Daesh. There's no need to shy away from the name because of transliteration problems.
sandamy27  2/27/2016
Due to the terrorist group of "Isis" I estimate that this name won't be on the charts for that much longer. I know it will keep declining. And because of the terrorist group, one would have to be either pretty brave or stupid in order to name their child this. To state it bluntly, "Isis" isn't a safe name to use anymore.
― Anonymous User  3/6/2016
This is the beautiful name of an awesome goddess, and I'm seriously pissed off that it became associated with a disgusting terrorist group!
Buneary  5/1/2016
My Isis was born in 1998, before the terrorist's name. She looks as exotic as her name sounds absolutely gorgeous. Her middle name is Tahjai, which I feel goes great with it. After the terrorists came out with HER name, she has been picked on some, but she knows who she is and is a strong, proud, beautiful young lady. I had a nice sized charm created in gold of the Egyptian Goddess Isis and a matching gold chain. So that she's able to show those who have no idea.
myisis  5/5/2016
Yup, no one's surprised this name left the charts. I'm very thankful this name has left and not just because of the terrorist association. I never been a fan of the name Isis, even well before them.
― Anonymous User  5/10/2016
The name Isis was given to 117 girls born in the US in 2015.
HerculePoirot  6/16/2016
I heavily dislike this name. Not only because it's the name of that moronic terrorist group, but because it just sounds too ancient and I can't see it on a person.
― Anonymous User  8/2/2016
Isis is a lovely name. Ignore the idiots who link it to a terrorist group.
― Anonymous User  11/20/2016
I feel immensely for the poor girls out there named Isis who will have to endure hate and bullying just because they share a name with a terrorist group that has nothing to do with the original Isis.
S-Genesis  12/31/2016
Why would you name your daughter this now-a-days? There's a terrorist group called Isis and I wish they would never exist.
RomanCS02  2/12/2017
At the moment, this is a name to avoid, due to those stupid terrorists.
Acajou  3/13/2017
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, AKA the Islamic state of Iraq and the Levant, AKA Daesh, will come to most people's mind. Not saying that I hate the name, I'm just pointing out the obvious.
― Anonymous User  5/23/2017
An absolutely beautiful name for a baby girl, especially if she's Muslim and will grow up to be a suicide bomber.
angolmois  5/24/2017
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, Islamic State, and by its Arabic language acronym Daesh, is a Salafi jihadist unrecognised proto-state and militant group that follows a fundamentalist, Wahhabi doctrine of Sunni Islam. ISIL gained global prominence in early 2014 when it drove Iraqi government forces out of key cities in its Western Iraq offensive, followed by its capture of Mosul and the Sinjar massacre.
cutenose  6/24/2017
This name was once quite popular, until the terror group known as ISIS rose to power.
― Anonymous User  8/6/2017
This name is gorgeous. It sounds beautiful and has an interesting meaning and I would have loved to name my future daughter Isis. It's sad that we are now unable to use it due to that stupid, dreadful terrorist group. :(

The terrorist group killed this name. Such a darn shame.
