One of the best things about Egyptian names for girls is the blend of the old and the new worlds. Many names will have origins in ancient Egypt, thousands of years old and passed through generations. Others have been brought to Egypt from the more recent Arabic world. However, one thing they have in common is that they are stunning names, rich in meaning.
As with many world cultures, Egyptian female names celebrate tradition, nature, and beauty. There are also strong female role models and princesses present in today’s names, which could inspire your little girl as she grows up.
