hi there :)
« on: November 23, 2010, 12:26:33 pm »
I will probably lurk more than anything for quite some time, but I will try to be more active than that!!

I have been trying to learn bits and pieces over time for Egyptian religion and mythology, but self-study tends to get put-off until I think about it again.  Since my most recent addition to my family has chosen to be named after the Egyptian deity of Sutekh, I decided it was time to do some more digging.  Thus I am here.

My curiosity is piqued.  Do tell about this recent addition to your family who chose to be named after Sutekh. ;)

Taqaisenu,

Recently my girlfriend and I took in a stray cat from the neighborhood that is an all-black kitty, can't be more than a year old or so.  Given the interactions we have had so far, we believe it to be the reincarnation of the familiar she had earlier in life.  

We waited until a name presented itself to us for her rather than choosing one arbitrarily.  Well, on the coffee table I have my book of Egyptian Mythology, and she would happily sit on it like a statue.  She might go and come back, but would always sit on it.  So finally I asked her if that meant she wanted an Egyptian name.  Given the positive response from that question, I started reading through names from the Encyclopedia of Gods and Goddesses, and finally settled on deciding between Bastet and Sutekh.  I think it is kind of cheesy to name a cat after Bastet, especially if she really was the reincarnation of my girlfriend's familiar, so Sutekh it is.
