The Original Meaning of the “N” Word

The word “nig…” used to be the most revered and sacred word in the universe. It was the “devine epithet,” and the people who began using the mother of all words that originated from this word which was sullied by the British, were the ancient Egyptians or better, the Khemites, who called their land, “Khemet” or “The Black Land,” and also used the name, “Ta-merri” or “The Beloved Land.”


The father of the “n” word was the word used by the ancient Egyptians for “God.” That word was “N-g-r” and as one can see, there are no vowels in this word. In the ancient African and even the present African languages (the Afro-Asiatic linguistic family) vowels such as “a,e,i,o,u” are not found in many translations, particularly of ancient Hebrew and Egyptian languages.

In the translation of ancient Egyptian and Hebrew (which is heavily influenced by Egyptian), one will not always find vowels, therefore, very few people will realize that the word for God, which is “N-g-r” pronounced “en-ger” was the Egyptian word for God. In fact, the Egyptian word for “nature,” is also the word used for God. That word is “ntyr,” (pronounced net-jer.” Now prounce the word “nigg..” and the word “net-jer,” and one sees the clear connection.


In many African languages particularly the Niger-Congo language family. Words that connects with people, Gods, and groups begin with “n” and that word is always the first word. For instance, the word “Nkosi” in Xhosa is “God.” The word “Ndaba,” in another South African language is “counsil” (or gathering of elders). Many common names also begin with “N”.


N-g-r (Egyptian;pronounced en-jer) = God
N-t-y-r (Egypt; pronounced net-ger) = God, Devine
Negash (Ethiopia; ne-gash) = King
Negus (Ethiopia; ne-goos) = Emperor
Nkosi (Xhosa; en-kosi) = God
Ndaba (Zulu; en-daba) = Counsil/Officials,
Naga (East Indian, Nubian = People
Nugarmarta (West African = People (See the writings of Ibn Buttata’s journey to West Africa)


The Romans are probably the first Europeans to misrepresent the word for God, which was “N-g-r”

About the early part of the First Century, Romans tried to invade Ethiopia. (see BLACK HISTORY CHART or go here for a list of Nubian Pharaohs and Queens.

The Romans who were speakers of Latin always knew of Blacks, there were Blacks in Rome, Italy had an ancient Black presence long before the Latins migrated from Central Asia and North Eastern Europe during the ‘Aryan’ migrations. In fact, the Latin ethnic groups is still in existance in the northern part of Italy even today. This part of Italy still grips about Hannibal’s invasion which happened about two thousand two hundred years ago!!!!

The Romans had a name for Blacks, it was “Niger” and it meant Black or people of African origins. Thus, Septimus Niger would have meant, Septimus the Negro. Yet, how did the Romans connect the word “Niger” to Black.

In ancient times, Blacks were worshipped as Gods. The Gods of Greece came from Egypt. The worship of the Black Madonna is connected with the worship of Isis, the Egyptian Goddes. Moreover, Blacks in Egypt called their Pharaohs “En-ger” or “N-g-r” he was literally referred to as “THE GOD.”

It is very possible that when the Romans tried to invade Nubia, they asked for the name of the God and the term “N-g-r” was probably used in place of “leader” or “king”. In Angola, the same also happened during the 1600’s when the word “N-gola” which means “King” (notice the “N” and the “g” in this word as well), came to be “Angola,’ the name of a kingdom in south western Africa.

A Roman general invading Nubia from Egypt would probably have used the Egyptian term for Pharaoh, which was “N-g-r” (God). This term then was used to refer to all Blacks and as time went by, the word N-g-r became Niger. In Fact, the Romans also classified their Emperors as “Gods,” to follow the Egyptian style. Moreover, as the History Channel poointed out, “Rome was a collection of villages before the Egyptians built it up.”(paraphrased).
The word “em-peror” sounds very close to the word “en-jer.” That is not a coincidental connection…………

  1. Having read this. I would believe the misaapropriation came from greeks not romans as Alexander the great was named God King in Egypt in order to complete his conquest and it was done through politics and diplomacy.

  2. According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary my grandmother gave me for my sixth birthday (I’m sixty-three now), the word “nigger” is defined as “a person with a black soul”.

    The word is especially pertinent today in it’s original meaning, don’t you think?

    Know your history.
    Know yourself.

    1. If you search in older dictionary nigger means ignorant person. It was later changed therefore people was been changing the true meaning of this words for years for their own advantage

      1. thanks for that Anna. I recall seeing a description similar to that, and one day I couldn’t find it anymore. Gone, completely erased. Bizarre.

        1. Ive noticed the same… I recall, with a mostly photographic memory, looking up the n-word when I was rather young, puzzled by why so many found it offensive… I regal seeing it verbatim stating “an ignorant person”… yet Merriam’s website claims this was never the case and claim it’s been defined the same way since the 1800s. It messes with your head… much like that Star Trek TNG episode where they’re trying to get Picard to break and say there five lights. -_-

          1. EYGPTIAN language stems back more than 10,000 years ago. How are you referencing something from the 1800’s.

  3. If this article is meant to show such reverence for the true/original meaning of the word, then why does the writer so blatantly avoid using it in full form (nigger)? Does one not believe what he tells the others to? Food for thought.

    1. The writer does not use the full word nigger because that isn’t the full word. Anyone who can read and has comprehension skills can read that the full spelling is Ngr and pronounced enger. White people took a word that means God or King and turned it into their derogatory word nigger It’s time we take our word back and if someone calls you a nigger, tell them “thank you, but it’s pronounced enger” . Make sure you sound condescending to the racist wiper!?

  4. Why are you so hell bent on using the modern version instead of learning it’s historical reference? I think the article is pretty clear about the history of it. Quit projecting your stupidities.

  5. I was informed my multiple persons on multiple occasions in time that the word “nigger” simply meant “human trash”. Like an individual totally devoid of class or completely lacking any consideration for others or grace. An untrained and willfully ignorant savage. The powers that be seem only happy to keep all of us ignorant to any definition other than ‘a horrible name for black people’. The race baiting to keep us all at war with one another… Btw I denounce BLM as much as I disavow KKK and Sharia law within the Orthodox teachings of Islam.

    1. BLM? Why’re you against my life mattering? We (Including you brownie) are the ones attacked by KKK! We don’t attack them! We don’t hate them! We don’t kill them! That’s what they do. We simply protest and say OUR LIVES MATTER.. And you’re against that? You’re ignorant. If my response to you saying “I matter” is “No, we all matter” then I am dismissing the issue. I am not acknowledging that you are being treated differently. Don’t bring BLM into this when you don’t know what you’re talking about.

      Why is it that when black people or groups of people shout ________ pride it’s about embracing their culture. While when white people talk about white pride/power, it revolves around hate and tearing everyone down. Don’t put us in the same goddamn category as them! We don’t hate or kill people over their physical features or cultural background. We simply want people to stop doing that to us! Then there are idiots like YOU that are apart of the problem. If I was as ignorant as you, I’d read your name and call you a terrorist. I know that you are not seen as white – you’re seen as someone of color and that’s why you are given bad names like terrorist or mistreated like we are. #BLM doesn’t mean that your life doesn’t matter. Let us stand up for ourselves! SMH! Why’re you on an African website talking about how you are against African American lives mattering.
