Ancient Egypt is one of the most iconic fantasy settings, and fiercely unique compared to traditional medieval fantasy. Here are some good ideas for names of their pantheons.
Good Egyptian God Names
Egyptian god names are best when taken directly from the language of ancient Egypt itself, and then given a greater sense of gravitas and reverence, check out these examples below:
Nekhtou is the goddess of night and darkness, worshiped by those who would prefer to remain unseen carrying out their nefarious tasks.
Apmentenu is the god of the harvest, who has his celebration day in the late summer, when it is time to harvest the majority of the year’s crops.
Amenaa is the goddess of the hunt, worshiped by those looking to secure food for their families and pay reverence to the animals who must die to make it so.
Anuketmatma is the goddess of war, a favorite of warriors and kings alike as they look to expand their realms and vanquish their enemies.
Sefkh is the god of the moon, a favorite of those who call on the moon to channel its power to heal the wounded and aid the sick.
