The Name is Mine

The Name is Mine

If the Egyptian Queens Nefertiti and Nefertari were ever to meet one another, they might have a little beef with one another over people getting their names confused. They lived at different times and were Great Wives to different Pharaohs (Nefertiti to Akhenaten and Nefertari to Ramses II), but both their names have the prefix nefer-, which means “beautiful” in the Egyptian language. If you need help telling them apart, Nefertiti is the one with the tall blue crown, whereas Nefertari is the one with the gold vulture headdress.

Credit goes to singers Brandy Norwood and Monica Brown for inspiring the dialogue here, of course.
