Origin of the name AKHENATEN.
Etymology of the name AKHENATEN.
Meaning of the baby name AKHENATEN.
name meaning "the spirit of Aten," or the Sun-disk. A hymn
written to the Sun in his reign is as beautiful as the hymns to Jehovah in
the Hebrew Bible. The pure monotheistic religion did not suit the
priests of Amon (the old sun god) at Thebes, however, so Akhenaten
moved his court to Tel el-Amarna.
