Hey all, 

Col d'Izoard. What's the derivation of the name? I cant find much out with a quick Google. Is it someone's name, does it translate into English, what's it all about hive mind?

French wikipedia has the following

L'étymologie de l'oronyme Izoard est discutée (grammatici certant). Ce toponyme est peut-être un nom de personne d'origine germanique, Isoward, composé de isan, « fer », et ward, « gardien », un nom de guerrier

So not clear but maybe after someone's name
