Etymology of the name AMENOPHIS.
Meaning of the baby name AMENOPHIS.


AMENOPHIS (Ἀμήνὄφις).  Greek form of Egyptian Amon-hotep (q.v.), meaning "peace of Amon."  Amenophis, an Egyptian king, whose history as it is transmitted to us by the Greek writers is inconsistent with that of any recorded Amenhotep.  The Jewish historian Josephus attributed the oppression of the Israelites and the Exodus to a monarch of this name; but his conjecture is not supported by historical testimony.  If there were any basis for the theory, it would be derived from the strongly Semitic form of worship introduced by Amenhotep IV., or Khuenaten, which see. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).

King Amenophis built him a tomb,
Down in the desert's sandy womb,
Where he might lie, with a slave or two,
To spare him labors the dead must do,
King Amenophis!
raiths and Realities, Rice, 1918)
