Hundreds if not thousands of individuals and organizations have been victimized because of their name -- ISIS. ISIS belongs both to an Egyptian goddess and the terror group in Syria and Iraq. The name association between a divinity and the killers is coincidental, but that doesn't make it any easier for those who are not linked in any way to the Islamic State. Some companies are changing their name. As for individuals, they might have to do the same. Part of the problem is ignorance. Many in the modern day do not know that ISIS was a goddess in Egypt. Hence, they are incensed whenever they come across the name in modern usage. Still, that is a small justification for their acts.
