There once was a diet medicine called AYDS (Yes pronounced AIDS)
Well once the 80's AIDS epidemic started ....

The company eventually had to pull it from the market

How's that for something coming up ruining your name

Isis is a Greek Goddess. Been a thing way before the Islamic State was being called it.

What's really dumb about this is that the name ISIS was only used for about thirteen months in English-speaking countries (April 2013-May 2014). The U.S. chose to call Islamic State "ISIL" in May 2014 and then adopted the Middle Eastern name DAESH (Da'ish). So if a nailbar wanted to express its support for Islamic State, they wouldn't be called ISIS in the first place.
