There is no evidence for Raufu. It is a figment of your imagination from your misinterpretation of the hieroglyphs from your total lack of understanding.
The seal is tiny and inscription is not as big as the cartouches on Seneb's family group.
See the cartouche for Djedefre on the left. The sun disc has a dot in it. See the cartouche for Khufu on the right. It has no dot nor paint. Plain circle, exactly like on the seal but bigger. It is not Raufu is it? Exactly like on the seal. It is the kh for Khufu plus it was carved after Khufu was dead. No Raufu. It says Khufu.
The ancient Egyptian weren't confused Scott. It is you who are confused.
Djedfere put a dot in his disc. Where is even one cartouche for your Raufu with a dot in it? Where is your photographic evidence for one dot in the supposed name Raufu?

You and Sher are comparing the English spelling of an ancient Egyptian hieroglyph with the English spelling of an Arabic word and telling us what?
Khufu does not mean horizon. Ufu is not ancient Egyptian. Do you know what Khufu means Scott? Bet you don't.
> Khufu - Basket of the Horizon.
> Raufu - Sun God of the Horizon.
No such word in ancient Egypt. Another of your inventions. Ufu does not exist as a word in ancient Egypt. Ufu does not exist as a seperate entity in the name Khufu either.

If he changed his name to Raufu why does it say Khufu on Seneb ?
Carved after he died. If his name had been changed why is he called Khufu?

And you have done nothing but make things up from your bone dry reservoir of knowledge about the language of the ancient Egyptians.

That says it all.
