    I highly doubt that one is Serbian but you are correct on the pronunciation if it were.

    I personally think her mother was idiotic for naming her child Isis. It may have ancient and charming origins, but you'd have had to be living under a rock not to be aware of its offensive meaning in this decade.
    As a side note, the Earl of Grantham in Downton Abbey had a dog called Isis...the producers had to kill her off, due to the offence it caused.

    Same. I can't recall hearing anything about ISIS until maybe 3-4 years ago.

    On a side note, it's the name of the intelligence agency in the cartoon series Archer.

    how long has Isis been around for? like in our media/sphere of awareness? surely not more than 5 years??

    if the kid is over 5 years old then it's not really the mums fault. if she named her kid Isis anytime in the last 3 years then I agree, it seems a little ignorant.

    They've been around since 1999, but more particularly active since 2006.

    Except that 2 minutes on Wikipedia tells us that they did not adopt the name ISIS until 2013. Considering that this child was born in 2010, I fail to see how the woman is idiotic. Unless you class a failure to be able to predict the future as stupid. If you're going to call someone an idiot in public, make sure that you've got your facts straight first.
