Author Topic: What do the other names mean? (Sorry if this is a stupid question)  (Read 205 times)

   Hello, Im SlavicTaki, and i was wanting to know more about the Gods and Goddesses' names. I see different names that i have not heard of whenever i look into other forums, and i am mildly confused.. (For ex. Anubis being called Yinepu, etc)

If i may, may i have a list of the Gods and Goddesses' names that you may use, and who they are referring to?

I apoligize if this question is confusing, i am not the best at asking questions.  :-[

Em hotep!

There is no need to be sorry for asking questions  ;D

The spellings you are seeing are transliterations of the ancient Kemetic spellings (from hieroglyphs) into Roman (English) letters by Dr. Tamara Siuda, the Egyptologist and founder of Kemetic Orthodoxy.

The names you are used to seeing are the Greek names of the ancient Kemetic deities put into English letters. For example, Isis is the romanization of the Greek name which sounds like “ee-see.” We call Her Aset which is closer to how the ancient people of Kemet would have called Her.

You can read more about the Netjeru and the names we call Them here: https://www.kemet.org/names-of-netjer

Hope this helped <3

Health and love,
