An American teenage girl called Isis has recorded a video about being bullied over of her name in the hope she can help others in the same situation.

"I have people come up to me and say why are you killing us Americans? I'm an American too, how are you going to say that," she says in the video, which she posted on Facebook.

"So you kids out there with the name Isis love your name. Cherish your name," Isis said. "I'm still learning, and I know you are too, but in all reality, you're named after a goddess and not a terrorist group."
