Can anyone help me? I am looking for a resource or book with the names of all the gods and all the different forms of the gods. I always come across new names of gods, that are similar to the well known names, but I don't know who they are talking about. For example, from the Book of the Dead, Re-Horakhty a derivation of Re, or Wennefer, a form of Osiris. I know who they are now, but reading it the first time I did not know who Wennefer was. There are a lot of new names I come across, as they seem to change a little from the different time periods. I just came across a lot of new ones from another version of the Book of the Dead. Any help would be great.

Oh, yes. I still cannot read German. As for the book by Wilkinson, is it thorough? A lot of the names I come across aren't colloquial names, and seem to very close to the original spelling of the name. I know over time, a lot of the names became Greek.

If you ask for the most extensive / complete listing, you will not get around the "LGG" ... But I think even without detailed knowledge of German you can use this book :

Lexikon der ägyptischen Götter und Götterbezeichnungen I, Leuven : Peeters, 2002

With usually one or two sentences per deity and ultimately recurring designations on every page, an online translator should suffice ...

Every book of "The Complete" - series by the publisher Thames & Hudson Ltd. is basically recommended and belongs in every private library.
