English[edit]

The mask of Tutankhamon.

Alternative forms[edit]

We only know the letters mn of the last word in the name, as the Egyptians only wrote down consonants and no vowels in their writing system, so various people fill in various vowels.

Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Egyptian twt-ꜥnḫ-jmn (literally Living Image of Amun),

imn
n
tw&tanx

Like most Ancient Egyptian names, the original is a phrase rather than a single word.
