Ramesses also commonly spelled Rameses or Ramses, is the name conventionally given in English transliteration to 11 Egyptian pharaohs of the later New Kingdom period. The name Ramesses means "Ra [is] the one who gave birth [to] him".
Variants of the name include Ramose and Paramessu; these various spellings could be used to refer to the same person.
The various forms are based on the Greek (Ραμεσσυς: Ramessus), Latin (Ramesses), or Hebrew (רמסס: Ra`məse) forms of the name, all ultimately based on the Ancient Egyptian form: Ra`-mes-su.
