Ba-Pef means “That Soul”, and the demonstrative adjective “pef” has an indication of dread or hostility. This is an old deity, as we learn from the Pyramid Text that the king passes by the House of Ba-Pef where there is pain or woe. From the mastaba tomb of Meresankh III at Giza there is evidence that in the Old Kingdom Ba-Pef may have had a cult with a priesthood.
Ba-Pef was a minor underworld god in Egyptian mythology. The name literally means that Ba, which is roughly understandable as that soul. Ba-Pef is commonly portrayed as an obscure malevolent deity known from the Old Kingdom in which he may have enjoyed a priesthood. According to references among the Pyramid Texts he had a cult following and was associated in some way with pain or spiritual anguish affecting the pharaoh.
