Egyptian names

In antiquity, Egyptian first names very often had a meaning related to Egyptian mythology. Especially those for boys who referred to the solar god: Re, creator of the universe. These Egyptian names were written in hieroglyphics, a writing made up of symbols and various objects to form words. Even today, some Egyptian first names still have meanings related to mythology, such as the female first name Anat. Indeed, Anat became Re's daughter and was known to be a warrior goddess who protected the ruler in battle. Or the first name Hathor, which also comes from Egyptian mythology, means "Abode of Horus". The goddess Hathor is considered as the daughter of Re, of whom we spoke earlier, she is celebrated for her kindness.
