This is a terrible time to be named Isis. With the terrorist group the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria responsible for killing and injuring hundreds of people in Paris this week, and possibly hundreds more on a Russian airplane earlier this month, its acronym ISIS is everywhere.
Horrific, terrible. However, Isis has a nice connotation. It's the name of an Egyptian nature goddess. In fact, many people around the world are named Isis, after that goddess, including thousands in the United States.
That includes Isis Anchalee, a San Francisco engineer who got punished by Facebook for her name's bad association with the terrorist group. Facebook requires that people use their real name, but for some reason Isis Anchalee was blocked by Facebook for using her real name.
She took her beef with Facebook to, where else, social media. Twitter, not Facebook. (See photo.)
