When did it actually pop up? I've heard different things about this, and I'm curious.

Meaning "great house", the word pharaoh came to be used as a synonym for the Egyptian king under the New Kingdom (1539-1292bc).

and originally it was pronounced "per-aa", later Greeks pronounced it as "pharaoh".
I thought this is generally accepted. What other things have you heard? (just curious)

Mostly just different times that the word popped up. I've read that Akhenaten was the first guy to use it as a title (and goodness knows I could see him coming up with a way to mess up the language as well...), or else that it was the greeks that started using it as a title, and I've also heard that the phrase wasn't coined until the 1800's. I've always know that it meant "Great House" though.

I think it was first used during the 18th dynasty, but I'm not sure.

I heard that it was first used under the reign of Amunhotep III, but it could have been a different Amunhotep, I read it quite a while ago :-)

Does anyone know what the pharaohs were called before Amenhotep the 4th??

I guess they were mentioned as nsw-bit, the ancient word for "king", or they were called by their coronation names.
