A teen girl in Ontario, Canada is being bullied in her school because her first name is "Isis."

The teen was banned from using the name on the social media network Facebook. She said people at school are calling her a terrorist and a freak.

 

"ISIS" is an acronym for an extremist militant group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. The group is also called "ISIL," or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

The girl said her mother named her Isis after the Egyptian goddess.
