1800 HKSAR Name of the Day

Isis Ching See-nga, Tsuen Wan, Hong Kong (SCMP letters 30 Sept 2011)

a somewhat unfortunate novel name that is now more likely to be linked with the extremist militant and terrorist group

The name however is from Egyptian mythology where Isis was the goddess of the sky and nature. Isis was the most powerful of all the female goddesses of ancient Egypt; sister to Osiris and mother of Horus.
