This was a famous ancient city in what is now Syria. It was a huge oasis where camel trading caravans stopped. A very important place on the route across the Middle East. Used to be full of gorgeous ancient buildings from (maybe) 3000 years ago. Until ISIS bombed the crap out of it.

I think it's a great name. And one full of history. On the other hand the also great name Isis, is probably not going to used by anybody for a couple decades.
