A good name, like good will, is got by many actions and lost by one.
Lord Jeffery

Ancient Egyptian names are taken from several different things. Station, occupation, the gods you may worship or the gods and goddesses that took interest in the person. In Predator Turned Prey, or rather, in Sirap, the gods and goddesses who took interest in you decided your name. The way to create a name is to select a proper meaning or meanings and combine them into a word. Or combine them with a pre-existing name to create a name with titles. To locate one of Hunter's names, please press CTRL F and enter the name, then hit enter!
