1.) Ankhkaseshat Seshagemseger (causing the ka of Seshat to live, wisdom is found in silence)

2.) sa Seshat(*), mery Hethert-Sekhmet her Serqet-Aset.  (* = either Seshat-Nit-Nebthet or Seshat-Nebthet-Nit; it needs clarification since my RPD preceded formal recognition that they're triple-aspected.)

3.) If I remember right, it was 1998, at the second Retreat.  (The Imakhu name came with my ordination in... 2002 I think it was?)

4.) "ankh" is apparently also "sworn", "captive", "common soldier" and "garland of flowers."  

5.) Not Ankhkaseshat -- I didn't try to guess and would never have come close.  (Imakhu names are a sort of negotiation between the priest and Netjer with Hemet's help.)

6.) I had an AncientSites character name that was supposed to be "the heart of Ma'at is satisfied," but that's it.

2. son of Sekhmet-Mut beloved of Yinepu-Wepwawet, Nebthet-Nit-Seshat, and Set
3. I was named in Dec 06 I think.  I waited until I felt The Goddess called me to be devoted to Netjer before naming..
4. no puns
5. no i didn't, i really didn't want one until Mother "told" me to accept a name and take my vows.  Interesting enough b4 Nisut ((AUS) did my RPD I was drawn more to Set and Djehuti however it's very much a logical parent.
6. no, Kemet wasn't my thing..the Goddess brought me to HON.  I followed the Goddess' name Kali-Ma and drew upon the Hindu pantheon.  I'm 110% sure that I'm "ready" for the Netjer name  now...(shrug)

1.) TabauAmunet -- "The Power of Amunet"

2.) sat Mut Netet em Amunet, meryt Sekhmet

3.) I've been named for a good few months now, got divined in November of 2006. :D It was only about a month or so between my RPD and my Naming (Dua Netjer).

4.) I haven't really found any puns on my name. Hell, i haven't even been able to find any references to the bits and pieces of my name from antiquity.

5.) Honestly, i tried not to think about what my name would be before i got it, just so that i wouldn't have a spazzy cat attack from anxiety of trying to figure out what it was and waiting, lol.

6.) I didn't ever use any Kemetic nicknames before my RPD, unless you count my RP character name "Ahmunet" that i thought i'd made up years ago, because i liked the sound. Then when wandering around the internet i ran across a website that listed my Mother and all i could say was "Oh my God... o.o" Needless to say, that's where it all began lol. So i guess my Kemetic nickname was just a little bit like my Shemsu name. :)

1.) What is your Shemsu name and meaning?
[color:#6600CC]Khusisokar - 'Sokar stirs' or 'Sokar starts moving.'[/color]

2.) What is your RPD lineup?
[color:#6600CC]Sa Sokar-Wesir.  Mery Nefertem her Min her Wepwawet-Yinepu.[/color]

3.) How long have you been named, and how long did you wait before being named?
[color:#6600CC]I was named December 27th, 2006.  (At 8:56pm Central).  While it felt like an eternity between RPD & Naming, I was actually very lucky and it was just a matter of days.
[/color]
4.) Are there any interesting puns in your name that you have heard of? Please share them if you're willing to.
[color:#6600CC]Khusisokar can also literaly mean 'Shining son of Sokar. (Talk about your intimidating name to live up to!!)
Khusi can mean to stir, to stir up, to become moving and also to become full (like one's heart stirs) so I quite feel like an agitator for the ol Biq-daddy at times. [/color] :D  

5.) Did you try to figure out what your name would be before you got it? If so, were you close?
[color:#6600CC]Apparently I had some inkling all along, at least on some subconcious level.  Consider that I called myself Sisokar when I first was brought to the House by Him - that was certainly pretty darn close, eh? [/color] :D  

6.) Did you use any Kemetic names before you got your Shemsu name? If so, what were they and what did they mean?
[color:#6600CC]Sisokar - just a spelling variation of Sasokar 'Son of Sokar.'[/color]

For those not yet named or not planning to be named: Part B

2.) Do you use a Kemetic name right now? What is it and what does it mean?
3.) Do you plan on being named at any time? If not, and if you are comfortable sharing - why not?
4.) If you plan on being named, are you trying to guess what your name might be like? Care to share the guesses?


1.) Have you had your RPD done? Who was in your lineup?

Yes: my lineup is Yinepu-Wepwawet and Bast-Mut, and Sekhmet-Hethert and Seshat-Nit-Nebthet.

2.) Do you use a Kemetic name right now? What is it and what does it mean?

No; I'm a stickler for getting things correct (I blame Seshat ;)) and I wouldn't trust myself to choose a grammatically and culturally sensible name for myself in a language I didn't understand.

3.) Do you plan on being named at any time? If not, and if you are comfortable sharing - why not?

I'm not planning on becoming a Shemsu anytime soon: I'm more than happy with my RPD results and I'd really love to be named, but I just don't feel I could honestly vow to serve the Names in my RPD first above all other Names and other Gods, which is what the Shemsu vows entail.

I'm not ruling out becoming a Shemsu one day - after all, it took me 2 years to get from the beginner's course to the RPD - but I think that would require my Parents and Beloveds giving me a strong and unmistakable push towards Shemsuhood. Right now they seem quite happy to sit back and let me take things at my own pace, so that's just what I'm going to do.

4.) If you plan on being named, are you trying to guess what your name might be like? Care to share the guesses?

I'm not planning on being named at the moment, but if I ever do go for it, it would be cool if "shuri" showed up in some form. I'm currently greatly amused by Rekeh-Sheri ("little fire") in the Kemetic calendar. :)

1.) What is your Shemsu name and meaning?
Asetwedjbai "Aset turned me around"

2.) What is your RPD lineup?
Originally it was sat Aset-Serqet, meryt Hethert-Sekhmet, Wesir, her Yinepu-Wepwawet. Nut came along two or three years ago, and Nebthet in the last year (though She has been around much longer than that.) I have to confirm if Seshat or Nit come next.

3.) How long have you been named, and how long did you wait before being named?
I had my divination on March 26, 2002 and was Named in May 2002.

4.) Are there any interesting puns in your name that you have heard of? Please share them if you're willing to.
I don't know. I know that wD (wedj) can mean "order" as a noun or a verb. So maybe Aset is ordering me around? Or putting me in order? I'll have to ask someone who knows more about glyphs than I do :)


5.) Did you try to figure out what your name would be before you got it? If so, were you close?
Not really. I did have a dream just before my divination about getting a Shemsu name that was completely off! (Aset's bright one - it was in English, not Kemetic).

6.) Did you use any Kemetic names before you got your Shemsu name? If so, what were they and what did they mean?
My board name here was Iset, which is a different way of spelling Aset. I was consciously trying to make a distinction between Isis and Aset.

For the already named: Part A.

1.) What is your Shemsu name and meaning?

  Ma'ainakhtsen (I see Their Strength)

2.) What is your RPD lineup?

 Daughter of Sekhmet and Heru-wer, beloved of Set --- about two years ago, we discovered that Aset had also been 'hiding' all along.

3.) How long have you been named, and how long did you wait before being named?
 
 I was named at the year 2000 Retreat. I basically waited from the time I was divined until retreat. I think it was a month or two. It seems like we only named people in person then... if I remember correctly.

4.) Are there any interesting puns in your name that you have heard of? Please share them if you're willing to.

 Hemet(AUS) once mentioned something about building tools..

5.) Did you try to figure out what your name would be before you got it? If so, were you close?

 I wondered...

I had an inkling that the word "nakht" would be in it. The first time I heard/saw the word (as part of someone else's name) I just felt that it belonged to me somehow. Even though I didn't actually know what it meant.


6.) Did you use any Kemetic names before you got your Shemsu name? If so, what were they and what did they mean?

 I went by lots of names but none were Kemetic.

I do not share the meaning of my name with many people, and I would appreciate those who DO know it not spread it around. I was named in March 03.

My only guess was that my name would be something along the lines of "annoying one of her Fathers" (I didn't understand syncretism back then).

Since I cannot edit my old post ... I did some searching in HieroWords for "nai" and another meaning for it is "be lenient", so I suppose a pun on my name is Two Are Lenient?

3.) Uh... about 3 years now, I think.  Wow, has it really been that long?  I remember it felt like I waited forever until I was named, but it was only a couple of months.  :)  I'm one of the Fidget Queens.
4.) Well... I think the name says it all.  I've got a big sticker on me that says 'Yinepu's'  :)
