Ancient History : Demotisches Namenbuch Gesamtband
No egyptologist tackling personal names especially from the Late Period can afford demotosches ignore the ast Demotic evidence assembled here, all the less so because several names happen to be attested only in Demotic, but not in hierroglyphs. Many names are of non-Egyptian origin. By using the indices, specialists in the fields of Greek papyrology, Semitic, Iranic or Meroitic may easily know which foreign names are found in Demotic transmission.

Books in the Demotisches Namenbuch series
The number of students of Demotic has largely increased, and accordingly, many new texts of different kinds are being published. Thus, it is only now that the true richness of Demotic literature is becoming clear.
Demotic texts contain a lot of personal names which are frequently difficult to read. It is true, of course, that the numerous juridical and administrative documents are built up in a rather schematic manner, but the names are varying from one document to another. In addition to this, Hieroglyphic and Greek correspendences are noted, and, as far as possible, the name is translated.
Although for practical reasons only a characteristical selection of examples can be offered for each name, it may be seen easily which names were current, and which ones were rather rare.
No egyptologist tackling personal names especially from the Late Period can afford to ignore the vast Demotic evidence assembled here, all the less so because several names happen to be attested only in Demotic, but not in hieroglyphs.
