isadore M

ancient egyptian

This name derives from the Ancient Egyptian and Ancient Greek root “Isis (Iset) > Isis (Ισις) dōron (δωρον)”, meaning “gift of Isis”. Isis was the goddess of magic, and she is the most powerful of goddesses in Ancient Egyptian religion, and whose worship also spread throughout the Greco-Roman world. She was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patron of nature and magic. Saint Isidore of Seville (Spanish: San Isidro or San Isidoro de Sevilla, Latin: Isidorus Hispalensis) (c. 560–636) served as Archbishop of Seville for more than three decades and is considered, as the historian Montalembert put it in an oft-quoted phrase, "the last scholar of the ancient world".
