I am attempting to make an historically accurate map of Dynasty III Egypt, including all major cities and towns with actual era names of the places and the Dynasty III names of Egypts neighbors. I am having trouble finding many of the Dynasty III names of cities and towns, and any known Old Kingdom names would be much appreciated.

Thank you very much for any help you can provide

Try this work:

Baines, J. and J. Málek 1980. Atlas of Ancient Egypt. Cairo: Les Livres de France.

In general, this work gives tne names of towns and areas by time period (and it's in English).

If you can read glyphs (and German), you could also look at the map section of this work as well:

Hannig, R. 1995. Die Sprache der Pharaonen: Großes Handwörterbuch Ägyptisch-Deutsch (2800 - 950 v. Chr.). Kulturegeschichte der Antiken Welt 64. Mainz: von Zabern.

HTH.
