Etymology of the
Meaning of the baby name NEHIMEOU.
An Egyptian goddess who was represented as wearing a temple upon her
head. Her attributes are uncertain; she may have been a form of the
goddess Hathor. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
... The name of this Goddess
appears to read Nehimeou, Nehimaoee, or Nohemao. She is styled
"Mistress of the Eight Regions of the Land, Dominatrix of Tentyris,"
from which place her figure and hieroglyphics are copied. She is
called "daughter of the Sun." Her head-dress consists of
a shrine, from which water plants are sometimes represented to rise, her
head being covered by the body and wings of a vulture. In her hand
she holds the usual sceptre of the Goddesses. At the quarries of
the Troici Lapidis Mons, she occurs as the second member of a triad
composed of Thoth, this Goddess, and Horus (or Aroeris). Mention
is also made of the Goddess Merte or Milt. (The Manners and Customs
of the Ancient Egyptians, by Wilkinson, v.2, 1878).
