My favourite Egyptian game is the 'Pharaoh' and if I play I always choose a historical name. If you know the game, you know what I mean. So I wondered who are these Egyptian:
- Duathor
- Iras
- Enehy
Because, they're ancient Egyptian names, and the other names belong to big queens or princess I would like to ask who were they. Thanks for helping me out.

I also like to play "Pharaoh" ^_^ I usually choose a name from the Armana period--I have Tutankhamun and Akhenaten, and so far, my Akhenaten family is winning Shocked Hehehe. Laughing I know what you're talking about, but unfortunately, I don't know the names that you are searching for. It would be a good research, though. ^_^ And I hope to play "Immortal Cities: Children of the Nile" next, I just need the means to go and get it!! Laughing Hehe.

I never heard about 'children of the Nile"... If we talk about Egyptian CDroms, I have to say Pharaoh and Egypt III rulZ Cool

I just finished playing children of the nile.... it is very hard but keeps you interested.... took me quite a while to win it (I got it for x-mas and just won it 3 days ago) but well worth the play. As for Pharaoh, I too have that game along with the Cleopatra expansion, I won it awhile ago, but love it and keep playing anyway!
Some of the others I have that are fun are:
Mummy: Tomb of the Pharaoh
Egypt 1156 BC
Riddle of the Sphinx
Egypt II the Heliopolis Prophecy
Atlantis II (Not soley Egypt, but does have a section on it)

Just dealing with Ancient Civs:
Caesar III
Emperor
Zeus
Alexander (warning got BAD reviews... have not played it yet so can't give my opinion)

I notice that no-one has actually answered your question yet, so I'll give it a stab. OK. It's quite hard to translate without actually seeing the names written down, but I can have a shot. It looks at first glance as though the names have been formed from various bits and pieces of other names, so they might not make much sense.

Let's take the name Enehy, which a quick internet search reveals was the name of the woman in this statue. Enehy was a temple musician and player of the sistrum, often associated with Hathor, the patron Goddess of music. The fine clothing and quality of the statue show that she must have been relatively rich, further strengthened by her exquisite burial in Memphis. The statue dates to the 19th Dynasty. I cannot deduce what her name means. . . "In (?)"

Iras I recognised immediately as being the name of one of the maids to Cleopatra, named both by Plutarch in his epic, and by Shakespeare in his famous play. There's quite a famous line in Anthony and Cleopatra where Cleo announces that she fears that one day the tragedy of her life will be acted out with "some squeaking Cleopatra boy my greatness," to which Iras replies, "I'll never see 't; for, I am sure, my nails Are stronger than mine eyes." (implying that she will scrape out her eyes if ever a man plays Cleopatra on stage, which would obviously have been the case when the Stuarts watched it. The name "Ir-s" means "She does/creates," by my crude translation.

Duahathor is a very common Egyptian name. It means, once again by crude translation "Adoration (to/of) Hathor."
