Hi stampfan9

It depicts Queen Nefertari, the wife of Ramesses II and says

The Osiris, The Great Royal Wife, Nefertari, beloved of Mut.
The inscription under her elbow is a reference to Ra

If you want to see the astonishing complexity of the Egyptian pantheon, look up "Mut" in Wikipedia. The article mentions that "Mut" meant "Mother" in Egyptian. Did that eventually evolve into "Mater" in Latin and "Mutter" in German, and finally "Mother" in modern English? Very few words we can trace back 5,000 years!

Hi doug222

Most Egyptian philologists (language authorities) do believe that that is the eventual base for our word Mother. It is interesting to note that there are many words taken from ancient Egyptian into English.
Nitre, Ammonia, Kau for cow, are some examples.
Proper names like Susan, which in ancient Egyptian meant Lily, so here you have two names. Also the name Yuri is Ancient Egyptian, and philologists now believe that the name George is also ancient Egyptian.
Nothing is new, we just keep recycling.

I knew that my name, Susan, meant lily, but I didn't realize its origin was Egyptian. I love learning here!
