So, it’s all very well reading about Meredith Pink’s Adventures in Egypt, but how do you go about pronouncing all those weird-looking ancient Egyptian names? Examples include: Nebkheperure, Smenkhkare, Meryre and Ankhesenamun.
The simple tip is that you emphasise the name of the God. So, for example, any name ending in ‘re’ has that ending pronounced ‘ray’.
I’ve put together this video-guide to demonstrate the correct pronunciation … I hope it helps ! (It’s best to watch it in full screen mode to see the sub-titles for how to pronounce the names)
