Isis falls from favor as baby name for Americans

On baby names, at least, divided Americans can generally agree: Don’t call your child Isis.

  • Was it something they said?

    Too bad the name of a perfectly nice Egyptian goddess has been ruined by a bunch of Islamo-thugs.

      I liked the Mid. 1970’s T.V. show.

      • Hey! You alright? We’ve been worried.

        • Xavier

          Yeah me too.

          I have had better weeks, but I’m well enough to be released from the hospital and I hope to be home by tomorrow.
          I’ll write something officially when I’m on a white-listed IP addy.
          I only get scared when the pros act scared, and they were acting pretty danged funny when I was admitted.

          • That’s good. We’ll have to have a belated 5 state sweep celebration. 😉

          • Shebel

            I kinda like when you give me some fucking LIP.
            Don’t stop . I would be lost.

            Good on ya.

    Can you imagine a Christian calling their kid -JESUS ?

    You would have to a Perfect Person.

    Name your kid Muhammad— and I can’t think of a SIN that is not allowed.

    Such is the Glory of Islam.

      Hispanics have been naming their sons Jesus (“Hay-SOOSE”) for as long as they’ve been Catholics; it’s a thing in their culture and I don’t think it puts any particular burden on the boy to be perfect. Jesus or Yeshu in Hebrew was a pretty common Hebrew name at the time he lived. The name Joshua which is very popular among Christians is another form of it. I agree though that in all other cultures naming your son Jesus would be seen as very weird. Outside of Hispanic culture it’s just never taken off as a practice.

    I was annoyed when they killed of their lovely dog Isis, you know the starting shot on Downtown Abbey. They said she was old but her name was Isis.

  • Kathy Prendergast

    I’ve always considered it a silly name for a girl; good for cats and dogs though. The lovable golden lab in the TV series Downton Abbey is called Isis.

  • Achmed

    Soon the most popular names for babies in America will be Mohammad, Mohummud, Mohammed, Amina, Fatima and Aeisha!
