The name “Nefertari” is originally the ancient Egyptian queen.

Nefertari (Nefertari Merytmut) was one of the Great Royal Wives of Ramesses(the Great). Nefertari means ‘Beautiful Companion’ and Meritmut means ‘Beloved of the Goddess Mut’. She is one of the best known Egyptian queens, next to Cleopatra, Nefertiti and Hatshepsut. Her lavishly decorated tomb, is the largest and most spectacular in the Valley of the Queens. Ramesses also constructed a temple for her at Abu Simbel next to his colossal monument here.

Nefertari seemed to be a wise and cute woman.

I am surprised at the wisdom of the ancient Egyptian.
