Egyptian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

If pr.n is the perfect form of prj, the name consists of sḫm (powerful) +‎ jb (heart, will) +‎ pr.n (has gone forth) +‎ mꜣꜥt (Maat), thus ‘(the one) powerful of will (for whom) Maat has come forth’. However, pr.n can also be interpreted as a participle and a preposition, pr n (going forth for), in which case the name would mean ‘(the one) powerful of will going forth for Maat’.
