In africa names define alot of things,but the most important is YOUR ETHNIC BACKGROUND.
These are modern egyptian names that are originally 'egyptian' that is,if you eliminate the greek and arabic names,you are left with the names used by ancient egyptians which actually happen to be mostly bantu and west african(volta-congo)names.for example yoruba,igbo,akan,yao,ngoni,shona,mijikenda,fulani,serer,wolof,kalenjin,tutsi,baganda were part of the population of ancient egypt,kush and libya 3000yrs ago.But they migrated south during the bantu and nilotic migration.These are some of the names used today by modern arabic speaking egyptians and are described as egyptian names.
