Etymology of the name Egypt.


                                            Knowledge about the Dravida Tamil – Sumerian -Egyptian Magical letters and their meaning is essential to understand the article.


                                     [].   The English name   Egypt       is derived from the   ancient Greek  Aígyptos  (????pt??), via   Middle French   Egypte   and   Latin   Aegyptus . It is reflected in   early Greek   Linear B   tablets as   a-ku-pi-ti-yo . The adjective  aigýpti -, aigýptios    was borrowed into Coptic as   gyptios,   and from there into Arabic as   qub?i , back formed into    qub? , whence English   Copt . The Greek forms were borrowed from   Late Egyptian   (Amarna)  Hikuptah   "Memphis", a corruption of the earlier    Egyptian   name   Hwt-ka-Ptah   ( < ?wt-k-pt? > ), meaning "home of the   ka   (soul) of Ptah", the name of a temple to the god    Ptah at   Memphis.   Strabo   attributed the word to a   folk etymology   in which   Aígyptos   (????pt??) evolved as a compound from   Aigaiou huptios   (A??a??? ?pt???), meaning "below the Aegean".
