David,
The etymology of the Egyptian word sqd comes from the verb qd and the prefix s. The q may have been pronounced with a guttoral sound like a k except further back with the soft not hard palate.

qd means to build, shape, mold, outline. Pottery for example uses this word as it is in the context of building and rebuilding (eg Inventory Stele).

many verbs in Egyptian have a prefix "s" and it means "cause to".

So..sqd...phonetically approximated by seqed literally means "cause to shape" like skheper means "cause to appear" for example.

Verbs could be turned into nouns and adjectives. Nfr for example actually means "s/he who is good/perfect/beautiful" but it is interpreted as an adjective, good/perfect/beautiful, even though it is the active participle (ie attributive) verb form of nfr strictly speaking.

By the same token, seqed when used like a noun means something like "shaper" or more liberally perhaps "silouette" but it comes from "that which causes to shape".
