I don’t want to go too much in this discussion… but the real name of the Egyptian goddess is Aset, while Isis was the ancient greek (and latin) word.

I think to avoid problems and at the same time to keep a link to the ancient goddess of the Nile the best option was to use the original name and not the common translation

I’m pretty sure we could find any number of players who have screenshots of the alliance description and ravens that would suggest the Goddess had nothing to do with the name you chose wink

so what do you mean? and send out your shots, as being Egyptian-American-person of color, i say ISIS, in the meaning as stated             Many politicians and media organizations that have chosen ISIL rather than ISIS have said they went with the former as a paean to grammar. When you translate the Arabic name for the group of insurgents (Al-Dawla Al-Islamiya fi al-Iraq wa al-Sham) into English, many argue that using “the Levant” (a.k.a. ISIL) to describe the region is most accurate—as this WorldViews post from June

House Democrats last year decided after a long debate that they too would call the extremist group ISIL—partly because ISIS was a name that first belonged to a goddess, and then to thousands of women who took said goddess’s name, before a terrorist group claimed it.
