What does HOTEP mean?

The Egyptian word Hotep translates to roughly "to be satisfied, at peace". It is regularly found in the names of ancient Egyptian figures such as Hotepsekhemwy, the first ruler of Egypt's Second Dynasty. It is rendered in hieroglyphs as an altar/offering table. It has special semantic meanings in the Ancient Egyptian offering formula, also known as the ḥtp-dỉ-nsw formula, to refer to the "boon given by the king," or the food and goods on which a dead soul was supposed to subsist during the afterlife. Hotep is the Egyptological pronunciation of Egyptian ḥtp. The phrase m hotep has been translated to mean literally from law "peace" as in the Egyptian philosophy of living the life in Maat.
