Meaning of the baby name NEHIMEOU.


NEHIMEOU.  An Egyptian goddess who was represented as wearing a temple upon her head.  Her attributes are uncertain; she may have been a form of the goddess Hathor. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).

... The name of this Goddess appears to read Nehimeou, Nehimaoee, or Nohemao.  She is styled "Mistress of the Eight Regions of the Land, Dominatrix of Tentyris," from which place her figure and hieroglyphics are copied.  She is called "daughter of the Sun."  Her head-dress consists of a shrine, from which water plants are sometimes represented to rise, her head being covered by the body and wings of a vulture.  In her hand she holds the usual sceptre of the Goddesses.  At the quarries of the Troici Lapidis Mons, she occurs as the second member of a triad composed of Thoth, this Goddess, and Horus (or Aroeris).  Mention is also made of the Goddess Merte or Milt. (The Manners and Customs of the Ancient Egyptians, by Wilkinson, v.2, 1878).
