The Story Behind Ra and Thoth in this Blog


Ahli cocoklogi, mungkin itu salah satu kelebihan gw, and I should list it on my CV :P
Brainstorming mengenai nama instagram professional gw dan suami, sampe gw pikir sekalian aja bikin blog lagi dengan nama sama.
Behind our name, ternyata memang hampir mirip sama karakter kita di dunia nyata, jadi bisa dibilang nama dari orangtua kita adalah doa, dan pelan2 ngebentuk diri kita yang sekarang, setelah melewati jatuh bangun kehidupan hahaha..


Karena gw egois gw aja yang mulai duluan, mengingat suami gw juga lagi mimpi di sebelah gw, nasib gw insomnia.

Ratna derived from Sanskrit रत्न (ratna) meaning jewel, treasure. Look at diamond wannabe (and real diamond) in my stuff LOL.
Kirana derived from Hindu, Indian, Sanskrit meaning Light of Sun, Beautiful Ray of Light. Another shiny things, love my glitter shoes, metallic lipstick, and my bling wedding ring ;P
Bisa disimpulkan bahwa pengikat dari nama gw adalah cahaya, atau sesuatu yang menyilaukan lah ya, tercermin dari barang pribadi gw, seperti warna neon yang menyakitkan mata awam :D
Big RA in front of my name, the Ancient Greek Deity, look at wikipedia:
Ra is the ancient Egyptian sun god. By the Fifth Dynasty in the 25th and 24th centuries bc, he had become a major god in ancient Egyptian religion, identified primarily with the noon sun.In later Egyptian dynastic times, Ra was merged with the god Horus, as Ra-Horakhty ("Ra, who is Horus of the Two Horizons"). He was believed to rule in all parts of the created world: the sky, the earth, and the underworld. He was associated with the falcon or hawk. When in the New Kingdom the god Amun rose to prominence he was fused with Ra as Amun-Ra.To the Egyptians, the sun represented light, warmth, and growth. This made the sun deity very important, as the sun was seen as the ruler of all that he created. The sun disk was either seen as the body or eye of Ra.
Hopefully my life would light an idea lamp to all of you, like the sunshine on summer days.
Now my husband turn.
Anton is an english baby name, it means highly praiseworthy. From a Roman clan name, in the 17th century, the spelling Anthony was associated with the Greek anthos meaning flower.
Yeah sangat berharga, atau bisa jadi bunga, kaya forget-me-not (tetep disambung2in aja gitu loh).
Widjaksono artinya bijaksana, literally.
Usually i called him Ton than An (emmm An sounds girlish), or maybe should I start call him Thoth? Hahahaha..
Thoth (/ˈθθ/ or /ˈtt/; from Greek Θώθ thṓth; derived from Egyptian ḏḥw.ty) was one of the deities of the Egyptian pantheon. In art, he was often depicted as a man with the head of an ibis or a baboon, animals sacred to him. His feminine counterpart was Seshat, and his wife was Ma'at.Thoth played many vital and prominent roles in Egyptian mythology, such as maintaining the universe, and being one of the two deities (the other being Ma'at) who stood on either side of Ra's boat. In the later history of ancient Egypt, Thoth became heavily associated with the arbitration of godly disputes, the arts of magic, the system of writing, the development of science, and the judgment of the dead.Thoth was originally a moon god. The moon not only provides light at night, allowing time to still be measured without the sun, but its phases and prominence gave it a significant importance in early astrology/astronomy. The cycles of the moon also organized much of Egyptian society's rituals and events, both civil and religious. Consequently, Thoth gradually became seen as a god of wisdommagic, and the measurement and regulation of events and of time. He was thus said to be the secretary and counselor of the sun god Ra, and with Ma'at (truth/order) stood next to Ra on the nightly voyage across the sky.
Nahhh Sun and Moon, so romantic, tapi gender switch.. Lagian kenapa cewek harus identik sama bulan yang lembut dan dingin sih, apa karena kita datang bulan? (-____-)
