Pharaoh’s Daughter gave Moses a Hebrew name? The Myth: And the child grew, and she brought him (Moses) unto pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, because I drew him out of the water (Exodus 2:10). The reality: The name Moses actually comes from the Egyptian word msy meaning is born, which is usually appended to the name of a god, as in Thutmose or Ramose that is Thoth is born. The Greeks transliterated the msy element as mosis and in English it became Moses. Since the names of other gods, deities were taboo among the Hebrews, the front part of Moses name was dropped, leaving only the msy element. I know of another area where Egyptian deities were masked away from the bible is revealed with the Goddess of canals Net. Net is an Egyptian goddess of canals and her image was hidden in bible verse. In the Bible there is a city called Cana where Jesus turned water into wine. Cana means the “Nest” in Hebrew but really is the goddess Net of canals. So the place where the water was made was made into wine was a canal not Cana by Horus not Jesus.
