Yes it is! I did this list just for fun since Heru is not on my  cult and thought it may be useful to be posted. I got the names from the forum (specially the Saq-Nisut about the Heru gods) and from the LAGG.

Heru-Yinepu and the fact that both Heru and Yinepu have the Dunawy title/form just lends more credence to the idea of a Jackal-Falcon continuum...

And then there's:

Sobek of Shedet, Heru who resides in Shedet.

I once saw an image of Yinepu with the body of a Hawk/Falcon and the face of a Jackal. I think it was from the temple of Dendera, but I'm not sure

A minor correction on the name of Heruakhety:  While it looks like a dual ending, it likely grammatically is a nisba, meaning "who is from the horizon".  Basically, when a nisba is written as a dual, it refers to origin.

Em hotep Asethepetwi! *henu*

Heru-Mekhenty-irty or Heru-Khenty-en-irty is actually "Horus, foremost of no or without eyesight." (The "me" and "en" do the same thing to His name, both at the same time doesn't happen as far as I know.) This is the Heru who has lost His eyesight due to the blinding injury of the moon every month.

Heru-Khenty-irty is "Horus, foremost of eyesight". Who is the Heru who is whole most of the month.

They are technically the same Heru at different time points within the month, but that difference can be pretty big. (After all asking a blinded Heru for help having something be revealed, might not work as well as asking the Heru with excellent sight.)
