Shenouda

Shenouda (Egyptian Arabic: شنودة‎  pronounced [ʃeˈnuːdæ]) is an Egyptian male name, which is commonly used among Egyptian Christians (the Copts). The name comes from Coptic: Ϣⲉⲛⲟⲩϯ (Šenoude / Šinouti ) and is a composite of the Egyptian words: še (ϣⲉ "son"), en- (ⲉⲛ "of") and Noude / Nouti (Ⲛⲟⲩϯ "God"), thus meaning the son of God.

The difference in pronunciation and transcription of the last part of the name is because of differing pronunciations in the main Coptic dialects for the Coptic alphabet.

Some of the most famous people with this name include:
