Isabel - Meaning of the Name

Dear David,

After seeing the pictures (the masonic pentagram) and reading the news articles posted today on Hurricane Isabel. It made me wonder what the name meant.


This is what I found:

Name Origin Gender Meaning
1. Isabel(83) Spanish Female consecrated to god


3 entries found for consecrated.
con·se·crate ( P ) Pronunciation Key (kns-krt)
tr.v. con·se·crat·ed, con·se·crat·ing, con·se·crates


To dedicate solemnly to a service or goal. See Synonyms at devote.
Dedicated to a sacred purpose; sanctified.


Consecrate \Con"se*crate\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. Consecrated; p. pr. & vb. n. Consecrating.] 1. To make, or declare to be, sacred; to appropriate to sacred uses; to set apart, dedicate, or devote, to the service or worship of God


adj 1: solemnly dedicated to or set apart for a high purpose; "a life consecrated to science";

2: made or declared or believed to be holy; devoted to a deity or some religious ceremony or use

Is this storm deliberately created to be used for "Solemn" service to a god?
