English Translation of Egyptian Hieroglyphics

Hieroglyphic Alphabet

Hieroglyphs were a pictorial alphabet used in Ancient Egypt from 3100 BC to approximately 300 AD.
The Hieroglyphic alphabet contains over 250 different phonetic and decorative hieroglyphics. Some alphabet representing sounds, other representing whole words and other full sentences.

As the sounds represented by the hieroglyphic alphabet are not exactly the same as in English, the easiest way is just write your name in English and our artists in Egypt will translate it into hieroglyphic. It does not always appear logical in English, as you will note there are some symbols used for different english letters that are the same symbol. The meaning and sound is in context to other symbols before and after.
Please note that some letters have more than one symbol or combined symbols, (example, A, CH, TH).
Please note this is not an exhaustive listing of all combinations, these are the most common used today.

 
You are welcome to request your choice of hieroglyphics, when ordering your cartouche, but please note that we cannot absolutely guarantee which symbols will be used. The final decisions rest with the artists in Cairo, especially when space on the cartouche is limited.

Sea Gyspy Online does not have an auto translator system, as most auto translators do not offer the varied options of symbols for letters or sounds as found below.
 

A = EagleA=ArmB=FootC= BasketD= HandE= Single Reed

F = Viper (Snake)G= jarH = HouseH = FlaxI = 2 StrokesI = Single Reed

J = Cobra (Snake)K = BasketL = LionM = OwlN = waterN = Crown

O = LassoO = ChickP = DoorQ = SlopeR = MouthS = Bolt

S = ClothT = LoafU = ChickV = Viper (snake)w = ChickX = Basket and Cloth

Y = Double ReedsZ = Bolt

Sounds SH or CH = PoolSound TH = RopeScarab beetleEye of HorusAnkh or Key of LifeHealthQueen Nefertiti

You are welcome to request your choice of hieroglyphics, when ordering your cartouche, but please note that we cannot absolutely guarantee which symbols will be used. The final decisions rest with the artists in Cairo, especially when space on the cartouche is limited.
