Problem of Hieroglyphs is dropping the vowels
therefore those names are not usually pronounced correctly
I think there is a book that list the names of the kings in Coptic, I didn't see it my self thought

I know some names in Coptic that may be interested to you
bAkhom it means "the Eagle"
bishoy "the height"

I can try to find you more if you want

But remember as has been said, vowels were not produced, so we do not REALLY know how a word (or name) was pronounced.

I do not see how we can be CERTAIN how the consonants were pronounced. I beleive the classical Greek Beta is now Veta in modern Greek.
Also there would presumably be local accents. What was written down would be the Egyptian of the educated classes.

Presumably we get the pronunciation of consonants from Coptic & to some extent from names which appear in Egyptian scripts and other known languages. Even though the vowels are not written why can't we get what they were pronounced as from the same source?

A google search will yield rich results, as I found out just now!
