What does Isis mean?
Isis (called “Aset” by the Egyptians) was the most important goddess of Egyptian mythology, and the goddess of love, fertility, healing and motherhood. Her name is the Greek form of an ancient Egyptian word for “throne.” Thus her name literally means Queen of the Throne. Isis was a protective goddess. She used powerful magic spells to help people in need. She was the daughter of Geb, the Earth God, and Nut, the Sky Goddess.
