The biblical Isaiah, son of Amos, was the most important of the major prophets, with an Old Testament book named for him.
Isaiah has been a star player on the contemporary athletic field, with several prominent basketball and football player namesakes, in addition to a memorable character on "Little House on the Prairie," and "Grey's Anatomy" actor Isaiah Washington.
Beyond that, two sports figures have named their sons Isaiah: Allen Iverson and Tim (and wife Elisabeth) Hasselback. Basketball superstar Isiah Thomas helped popularize that streamlined spelling of the name.
