A handy and colourful illustrated guide to reading, writing and understanding ancient Egyptian names, epithets, titles and phrases. The Egyptians believed that the creator god Ptah brought the world into being by naming everything in it. Names had great power, and kings often over-wrote their own names on the monuments of earlier rulers. A persons name was a vitally important part of them, and the Egyptians were very concerned that their names should be recorded, remembered and spoken. Criminals and those who had fallen out of favour could be punished - wiped out of history - by having their names destroyed or defaced. The hieroglyphic script provided a beautiful, flexible and expressive means to write the names of humans, gods and animals. Angela McDonald explains the meanings of Egyptian personal names and how they were made up (Rameses = Ra has given birth to him) and demonstrates how they were written in different ways to convey various shades of meaning. Royal and divine names are always given special treatment. The Egyptians were not always formal, and nicknames were common. Even the names of pet animals are recorded in tomb paintings.

This is a unique work in the field of Egyptian Hieroglyphic Decipherment. The author proposes with much evidence that the preferred language to use as a model for Egyptian hieroglyphic decipherment is Ancient Biblical Hebrew. There is a brief treatment of how the standard decipherment of Egyptian had gotten off track, discussed in the Preface, and at the beginning of chapter 2. Chapter 2 presents 11 methods of hieroglyphic decipherment, with examples. After studying this work you will be able to read many words and phrases in the ancient hieroglyphic writing. A small knowledge of Biblical Hebrew would be useful as a prerequisite, but is not necessary; the basics of Biblical Hebrew are covered. The author finds that the discovery of paradigms is the basis for proof in many areas of historical linguistics and decipherment. It is enlightening to see many proposed hieroglyphic words match Ancient Hebrew words, and these are found in a chapter on translations of Egyptian texts, a chapter listing hieroglyphic words deciphered, and also in chapter 2. The chapter on word derivation (Ancient Hebrew morphology) is intriguing, where it seems both Ancient Egyptian and Ancient Hebrew had a highly ordered and regular morphology. This is most likely the only book that shows in a more detailed fashion how to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphic writing, while showing how you can also do this work. The work is often not easy but the process of making discoveries and reading ancient texts is very exciting and fulfilling at the same time. In addition to the main subject chapters, this book also includes phonetic tables, a hieroglyph index, Coptic word list, Ancient Biblical Hebrew glossary, a chapter on proposed terminology for the historical linguistic subject of etymology, a chapter on sound-symbolism and Egyptian symbolism, and a section with questions and answers. Hieroglyphs are found mostly in chapter 2, chapter 3, and the hieroglyph index. In the chapter on more lengthily texts and translations, you may have to obtain one of the books listed to compare the visual text with the translations for that book; 6 books are treated in that chapter, including texts from Nefertari's tomb, texts from the pyramid tomb of Unas, and many others. But in most books on Egyptian art or Egyptology you will find many texts and cartouches which are similar, so that you can begin your own list of translations.
