How'd you get your Egyptian name?

A beautiful- thing is never- perfect.

Mummy is an ancient history major and LOVES Ancient Egypt so when she got me she named me Nefret - Nfr (as the hieroglyph goes) means "beautiful" and is found in Nefertiti or Nefertari or Nofret (all famous Egyptian queens or princesses) and the "et" ending is the feminine ending (kinda like how adding an "e" in French makes something feminine).

I even know how to write my name in hieroglphys! "Nfr" or "nefer" or "nofar" or any of those (since they didn't use vowels, we just have to guess...) looks like a guitar but Mummy said it's really a voice box. The "et" looks like a semicircle (it's a bread loaf I think).

Sinuhe

Killer Karnivore

My mama is a grad student studying Egyptology, and she was inspired by my exotic, lion-like profile to give me a good, classic Egyptian name. She picked Sinuhe, because not only is the name handsome (like yours truly), but it is iconic of classical Egyptian culture and has a pretty nifty meaning ("Son of the Sycamore").

Cleopatra truly lives up to her queenly name - she is very regal and thinks we should all bow down to her wink
Isis - she is definately beautiful and knows it wink
Ra - she looked like a lil ball of sunshine when she was a baby, so the Sun god name fit like a charm!
Brutus - yes more Roman, but he's very dignified and honorable smile

Cleopatra- 8/4/96-7/18/- 13
