"I named my daughter Isis Amaya in 2012 I love her name. Thought so much about changing it when the media started referring to ISlamic state about 4 months after she was born. We decided to stick with it. We do get funny looks when calling her name in public , we also get a lot of people saying how beautiful it is an they never linked the two! My only hope is that the media stops using it and my daughter can be proud of the name we chose." Jan. 31, 2017:

"my name is Isis and I hate that the media has took a beautiful name and destroyed it its sad" Oct. 19, 2017:
"I gave it to my daughter as a middle name in 2012 too, when it came out on the news I didn't change it because I spent so much time on picking it. Originally I was going to make it her first name but decided against it because she might not grow into a funky punk rock kind of name the way I might imagine. So I gave her a pretty common first name and left isis as a middle name so I'm happy with it, but there's no way she can appreciate the whole story of isis the way I did when I named her. It will mean terrorism to her, too, and I just hope she will be as nerdy and as good at telling stories as me because it will be tough explaining that to other kids if it comes up." Sep. 20, 2017:
"A very beautiful name. A comment to a previous post, the terror group never adopted the name, it was the media that wanted a better catch phrase and has severely damaged the reputation of the name. the terror group simply called themselves IS for Islamic State. Write to every media group and help me defend the name for what it truly is by asking them to refrain from using the name Isis in reference to the terror group known as IS. Thanks and lets make a difference and show we care" Jan. 3, 2016:
