The Downton Abbey Labrador is named Isis !!

Lord Grantham's faithful companion is named Isis.
How unfortunate !
Just watched the first new episode, couldn't believe my ears when Lord Grantham said "Come on Isis"
A quick Bing search (my second search) found

I wouldn't worry about it, there used to be an electronics program called ARES which had a sister product called ISIS too.
Does that make it suspicious?  Cheesy
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

The Labrador was named Isis a few years back, it's just a bit unfortunate with the current events.

Reminds me of the donkey joke Mike Reid used to tell  Grin it's on YouTube but as it's rude / NSFW I wont link to it on here.

Are we going to rename a river and the Oxford University reserve boat?

Probably have to rename the Egyptian Godess too,  don't want people to get confused by completely different subjects.  Angry
Even Trademark law allows the use of the same name in different fields,  but as soon as something like this comes along, it's as if no one is allowed to use the name any more in case it causes (faux) offence.
