In my story (which would date roughly in the present, within 10 years or so, and is set out in the desert near Giza, if it really matters), a character is addressing a sphinx, and I want to have him address her with an Egyptian or Arabic honorific that conveys a great deal of respect. It's okay if it's anachronistic; after all, the creature herself is absolutely ancient. However, most honorifics I've turned up tend to be for males, and often with Islamic overtones that don't really apply in this situation. I've searched Arabic honorific and Egyptian honorific on Google (both with a modifier of "woman"), Arabic and Egyptian titles and terms of address, as well as doing some prowling around Wikipedia, but I'm not having any luck.
If you know of any- especially if you know of several- please let me know what the meaning of the title is. Any education you can give me on this is greatly appreciated.
Also, if there is a different community that specializes in this sort of query, I'll be happy to take it up there. I just have no idea where else to start other than here, and you have all been more than helpful in the past with my odd questions.
Thank you in advance. I hope someone can help me out! :D
