Outrageous Nutella: We Can't Make Personalized Jar for Girl Named Isis

The name of that little girl – Isis – is now sparking a new battle over reclaiming the word, which up until recent years was tied only to a revered Egyptian goddess.
Isis’ aunt had tried to buy her niece five personalized jars of the hazelnut spread, only to be told later that the name was too controversial to be printed.
