Is 'virgin' or 'young woman' the correct translation of Isaiah 7:14?


Isaiah 7:14

ESV - 14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

The thing is back in those days
A name actually meant something
So by saying Immanuel = ?
The name of the person being spoken about could have had any
Name? A, B, Jesus ........????

I would like to add, it wouldn’t be much of a sign if the “young woman” was not a virgin, There is nothing noteworthy of a “young Woman” bearing a son.
