#1 Didn't Isabella conquer the last Moorish kingdom in al Andalus? I could see why naming your daughter after the queen of the conquistadors might upset someone who takes his submission and his history seriously. I'm trying to think of a parallel faux pas... my brother-in-law deliberately named his firstborn after Milos Obilic, but he doesn't have any Muslim or Turkish relatives or in-laws...
