"Named after a Saint Isidore (there are ten), but it is most widely believed to be for Isidorus Hispalensis, Bishop of Seville, (ca. 560-636), encyclopedist, theologian, author of Etyymologiae; (the standard Medieval glossary of the seven liberal arts) and many other works, he is the patron Saint of Farming, and the last of the Western Latin Fathers. He thoroughly reorganized the Spanish Church during the fourth Council of Toledo (633). His feast day is April 4.

Name first appears on the USGS Indio Special Map (1904)"
