Casey Tatro: Does any one know where the word Egypt came from. Please E-mail me if you have an idea or know where I can find the answer.
f.ojeda: The word "Egypt" comes from Ancient Greek "Aigyptos", but no one knows what was the meaning of that name. Maybe would be interesting to add that Ancient Egyptian name for "Egypt" was "Khem" and present Arab name is "Misr"
