The eldest daughter of Amun Ra who fathered children by spurting them from his penis. His first child, Osiris, was the consort of Isis and became the first great god of the overworld of men. His second child, Set, craved the office of the overworld as he was relegated to the underworld pursuant to the ascendance of Osiris. Isis was the third, the first great goddess of the overworld; cow-headed mother and responsibile for the instruction to mankind in all matters agricultural. Nephthys, her sister, followed by Horus, the youngest brother, round out the happy family of 5 children.
I have heard an interesting concept; that the name of Isis is translated into Hebrew by inserting the feminine letter Shin into the unspoken name of God, spelt then Yod He Shin Vov He, which is Jeheshuah, or the Hebrew name of Jesus.
The worship of Isis exists to this day, with Iseums, Lyceums, Groves and Priories located throughout the world.

Isis, the Egyptian goddess of rebirth remains one of the most familiar images of empowered and utter femininity. The goddess Isis was the first daughter of Geb, god of the Earth, and Nut, the goddess of the Overarching Sky. Isis was born on the first day between the first years of creation, and was adored by her human followers.
Unlike the other Egyptian goddesses, the goddess Isis spent time among her people, teaching women how to grind corn and make bread, spin flax and weave cloth, and how to tame men enough to live with them.

Shes named after an Egyptian Goddess. Friends can rely on her for anything. When she says she loves you, she means it. If you give her your heart, she wont break it.
