What are the two names of the Egyptian gods of the Nile River?
I keep finding conflicting information on what there true names are. The one in charge of the north side and the one in charge of the south side. Thanks for all your help!!
Actually, there is only one god (or goddess) of the Nile - Hapi - but it has both male and female apsects, depending on your perspective... in a sense, the god could be seen as two different deities. Here is a link that could be helpful: http://www.teenwitch.com/divine/kmt/hapi.html
"Hapi" was the god of the north and south Nile but he is depicted two different ways. Other gods that may be chosen would be "Sobek", the crocodile god, "Khnum", the God of flooding, and "Heket" goddess of the water.

The Egypt God Amon-Re, Seth the Egyptian God.
Thanks so much for your responses!
I will be publishing a page on the subject of Egyptian gods soon. Thanks for your help!
Hapi was the only God of the Nile. He was also called the "Lord of the fishes and the birds". I think the confusion comes from the fact that there is another God who wears the same name: Hapy, one of the son of Horus.
Due to his fertile nature he was often considered as being the "Father of the Gods". He was a positive deity, drawn as a man woth a belly and a blue or green skin representing the Nun waters.
I hope it clarifies things for you.
I found Ancient Egypt fascinating by the way.
