Neith (pronounced Nayth) is named for the Egyptian goddess of war and hunting, whose symbol and part of her heiroglyph resembles a loom. In later Egyptian mythology she also became the goddess of weaving, and gained the version of her name, Neith, which means "weaver." At this point in history her role as a creator changed from being water-based to that of a deity who wove all of the world and existence into being on her loom.
