Origin of the name ISIDOROS.
Etymology of the name ISIDOROS.
Meaning of the baby name ISIDOROS.

  

ISIDOROS (Ισίδωρος).  Greek name meaning "strong gift," from ἰς (from Γις) "strength," and doros "gift."  Latin Isidorus.  And see Isidor.

... Before leaving the word doros, we may mention the name Isidoros, a very old and frequent one among the ancient Greeks, and explained by some to mean Gift of Isis; but this Egyptian deity is an improbable origin for a name certainly in use before the Greek kingdom in Egypt was established, and it seems more satisfactory to refer the first syllable to ἰς, (strength), a word which when it had its digamma was Γις, exactly answering to the Latin vis (force or strength)... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
