When Tut was Tutankhaten his name meant " Living Image of the Aten". Did it mean anything when he changed it to Tutankhamun?

I think it meant the same thing. He really didn't do anything other than replace the god in his name. So Tutankhamun would be "living image of Amun".

Let's not forget the added title to his name of 'heka sw On' , which means 'Ruler of Sothern On (Thebes)'.

So his full changed name was 'Twt-Ankh-Imn, Heka Sw On' which gives us ' The Living Image of Amun, Ruler of Sothern On (Thebes)'.
