"Mut" is indeed pronounced like "moot" the u's and a's are generally pronounced as long sounds in the Kemetic language (thus, "Bast" which is usually pronounce like it's spelt, is supposed to be said like "Bahst")

Also, I don't think "Alla" means anything. The "L" isn't a prominent sound in ancient Kemetic and was usually replaced with a glyph that actually represents an "R" sound and used to replace the L's in foreign words. This was very common during the Ptolemaic periods. Cleopatra's name in heiroglyphics actually says "KRIOPADRA" where the glyph representing the "R" sound isn't an open mouth and is so understood as an "L" in certain words.

ETA: It's possible that "Alla" is a borrowed word from another language, but I can't find an Egyptian meaning for it
