The Pharaoh name of Egypt was "Hout ka-Ptah" which means the "home of Ptah" Ptah was believed to be an ancient Egyptian god. Then the name was simplified to "h-t-k-p-t" that was afterwards known as "k-p-t" then "g-p-t". This was rendered into the Greek, "Aegyptus" afterwards, then to english "Egypt"
