  1. After looking into ancient Hebrew(Yomf) and Ancient Egyptian (ymhtp) to pronounce these two names is strikingly similar. Yooommphf and ymoohtfff. Of course I could be transliterating these incorrectly if the sources I used online are incorrect. However, given our lack of understanding of verbal ancient language, I believe based on phonics alone one could prove that these two are in fact the same person written in two different ancient languages. If we knew the spoken language of the ancient people.
