Etymology 1[edit]

From a common Semitic source; compare Hebrew מִצְרַיִם(mitsráyim), Ugaritic 𐎎𐎕𐎗𐎎(mṣrm), and Akkadian [script needed](miṣru) or [script needed](muṣru). The ending in Hebrew and Ugaritic is the standard dual form, perhaps related to the ancient conceptualization of Egypt as two realms: Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt.
