Meaning of the baby name SEB.
In Egyptian mythology the deity Seb was regarded as a kind of cosmical
deity, and as such the oldest of and the father of the gods. In
other words, he represented the earth, as his consort the goddess Nut did
the heavens. Seb was rarely figured, but when he was referred to it
was as the "Great Cackler" or goose which laid the cosmic egg;
hence the goose was both the symbol of his person and the Hieroglyphic of
his name. Sometimes Seb was represented on the papyri as a human
figure, sitting or lying on the ground, with vegetation either proceding
from or covering his body, while his consort Nut is bending like an arch
over him. Occasionally, also Seb was called the "Lord of
Aliments," and was figured ithyphallically. Like Osiris and
Horus he was said to have reigned for a mystical period upon earth, and to
have been one of the first of the gods that did so: hence he was also
often called on the monuments, "The Father of the Gods." Seb,
