Isis - Meaning of Isis
[ 2 syll. i-sis, is-is ] The baby girl name Isis is pronounced in English as AY-SihS †. Isis is of Egyptian origin. It is used mainly in English, French, and German. It is derived from the word aset which is of the meaning 'she of the throne'. The name was borne by an Egyptian goddess celebrated as the ideal mother and wife; she was also the wife and sister of Osiris and the mother of Horus.
Isis is unusual as a baby girl name. Its usage peaked in 2005 with 0.028% of baby girls being named Isis. It was #522 in rank then. The baby name has markedly slipped in popularity since then, and is currently used only on a very modest scale. Among all girl names in its family, Isis was nevertheless the most commonly used in 2018.
† Pronunciation for Isis: AY as in "side (S.AY.D)" ; S as in "see (S.IY)" ; IH as in "it (IH.T)"
