Just how ancient is Ra?

  1. May 22, 2015 #1
    I was wondering just how ancient the name Ra was? Is it considered as old as the first speech? when humans first leained to talk, words like Ma and Pa? any paleolinguists out there? I was having some sore of weird dream about pharaoh reincarnation then crossed them with my memory's of watching little house on the prairie. :biggrin:

    maybe I can go back to sleep now ?:)
