I think they were referring to the deities mentioned in that particular post, as quite a number of Kemetic gods have Greek names.

Oh, I was! Specifically!

But because other Kemetic gods have Greek names, I was thinking that those in that post might. SO, that's why I was confused. Smiley

Right... but there's also Hathor and Anubis... I know Anubis is referred to as Anpu, and I forget Hathor's Egyptian name. Unless I am way off base here?

Hetharu, Hethert, Het-Heru... honestly I pick a spelling at random off the stack for Her.

That's something I've been wondering about. With the Egyptian name... does one just guess at random how to pronounce it?

Wepwawet in Greek is Ophois.

That's true, but I wouldn't say it's a common or popular spelling. Smiley

You too, huh?

I usually say Hetheru or Het-Heru.  I'm inconsistent on that dash.  Sometimes I'll write Hwt-Hrw if I'm in a Kerry Wisnerian mood.  He pronounces it Hoot-Hor or Haut-Hor.  Sooner or later I need to pick a spelling for Her and stick with it.  I seem to have settled on a spelling for everyone else.   Cheesy

I like (and until this thread had never heard of) the idea of two shrines.  Would it be inappropriate to ask for a photo?

Not at all! But as my sprformal shrine (which more or less fits as was described, Godbox, etc) isn't ready yet said photos might not be forthcoming for a while ;P I'll PM you them or something when it's done or close enough.

My informal shrine is also more or less as described. I wouldn't put my keys on it or handle it without washing my hands, but it's covered in some of the weirdest stuff.

Apep ----> Apophis.

But I don't think any Kemetic would put an icon of Apep on their shrine.  Shocked

The Wiki "Egyptian Gods" link I gave above is probably an easy place to work up a name cross-reference.

I was only referring to deities I mentioned in my post. Sorry if I missed something there.

Yeah, Hathor, Anubis, Isis, Horus, Thoth, and Osiris seem to be the most popular Egyptian deities referenced with Greek and Egyptian names. I'm sure there are more, though.

Oh probably not, but it was the first Kemetic to Greek name I could think of. Grin

What interpretations do you like? Or do you prefer the ancient iconography? Share!

Let’s recall, as Setnahkt reminded us, the ancients believed that, in a very real sense, it was possible for images and statues to come to life.  Beauty, grace, dignity, etc., were certainly top among characteristics portrayed, and presumably deemed pleasing to any Netjer wishing to in-dwell.  And if they weren't portrayed smiling, they at least seemed to have a contented look.

Any entity with a negative connotation would have been portrayed as to be rendered harmless: legless, armless, headless, cut in half, part of their name missing, etc., on the off-chance it could magickally appear, or cause problems in the Afterworld.

Some modern representations of Netjeru speak to me, others do not.  Interesting, however, that the “original” images of the Netjeru seem to have risen fully-formed in the mind of…one or more artists/priests/priestesses long ago, and for thousands of years people accepted, maintained and re-created those same images.
