NZ's mandatory fluoridation is not fair because it only forces it on the disadvantaged/some and not on the advantaged/everyone.

24th dynasty (Saite) :

BN Tefnakhte [Thaphaetus?]
TN Shepses-re
HN Siakhet[hor]
NN Siakhetnebty

BN Bakenrenef/Bocchoris
TN Wahkare.

28th dynasty :

BN Amenirdisu/Amenrut/Amyrtaeus HKL.


30th dynasty:

BN Nekhtnebef/Nectanebo 1
TN Kheperkare
HN Tjemaa
NN Semenkhtawy
GHN Irimeretnetjeru

BN Djedher/Teos (Setep-en-inhuret)
TN Iri-maat-en-re
HN Khaemmaat Seshemtawy
NN Merymaat Sahperunetjeru
GHN Khubaqet Wafkhasut

BN Nakhthor(en)heb(yt)/Nectanebo 2 (Meryhathor)
TN Senedjem-ib-re Setep-en-inhur
HN Mery-tawy
NN Shrw-jb-neterw
GHN Smn-hpw.

If anyone/everyone can do a dynasty it would help, as 300 kings takes a long time for one person to go through. Any corrections or additions or discussion or questions is welcome. Sorry i couldn't include the meanings of all the names.

In studying subjects connected with ancient Egypt i have found it necessary to know all the names of the pharaohs. I haven't been able to find any list anywhere that lists all the known names of the five names of all the pharaohs. (Its actually 6 names because they also had their pyramid name added afterwards too. I know they didn't have all five names until later dynasties but they did have a few of them even in early dynasties.) Some sources like Wikipedia do list the known names but it is a pain having to look up each and every one individually, but we have no choice but to have to do so and make out own list (here below in stages). (Many times when i've asked around for information on various things it is like subtle "nothing for free", they never give anything.)
Four dynasties done below in this first post so far (the 6 names only, not added king lists references yet). More dynasties to come if able during this year. I haven't also included queens, architects, viziers, etc except a few.
(I had once before partially attempted this at,1093884 but I didn't do anymore on it then and this is a different new attempt here.)
Ideally it would be best in a table, but it is easier to prepare/write it as list for now.

Key (6 names : 5 names + pyramid name) :
TN = throne name / prenomen / nesu-bity "sedge & bee" (1st dyn).
CN = catouche name (throne &/or birth name, 4th & 5th dyn).
BN = birth name / nomen / se-Ra/sa-Re "son of Ra/Re".
HN = Horus name / serekh name (0/1st dyn).
H&SN = Horus & Seth name
SN = Set(h) name (2nd dyn).
NN = nebty name "two ladies" (1st/12th dyn).
GHN = Bik-nbw / golden Horus name (1st dyn / Mid Kdm).
PN = pyramid name, or tomb/burial.

Key (king lists) :
BS = Book of Sothis king list.
MKL = Manetho king list (1st to 30th/33rd dyn)
EKL = Eratosthenes king list
HKL = Herodotus king list (1st - 28th dyn)
TKL = Turin king list (god kings to 19th dyn).
SKL = Saqqara king list (1st - 19th dyn)
AKL = Abydos king list (1st - 19th dyn).
KKL = Karnak king list (1st - 18th dyn)
SS = South Saqqara Stone (6th dyn)
GKL = Giza king list (6th dyn)
PS = Palermo Stone (00 - 5th dyn)
DS = Den Seal impressions (1st dyn).
