How do you pronounce Egyptian Gods?


Recommended Posts

Nut has a long u right? "Noot"

Does Tefnut?


How about Geb? Or Nephthys? Or Atum? Or Shu?


Isis, Osiris, and Set I feel okay about, I mean I know it is the greek/latin version but that is okay. Right?


Well an online dictionary with pronunciations that you can click on and hear what it sounds like said:


Nut is Noot or Newt

Geb is like short e in Ted

Atum is Autumn

Shu is Shoe, or shoo

Nephthys - Nef (short e like Ted) thys (soft th like thinking or thistle) Emphasis on the first syllable

there was nothing for Tefnut, but I would say Tef noot
