The Pharaohs of the Exodus[edit]

The article states that the "Rabbinic Midrash makes her [Bithiah] the daughter of one of the Pharaohs of the Exodus", and then gives a link to the [Pharaohs of the Exodus]. However, on following up on this link, there is a list of eight Pharaohs, but the connection of this list with the Rabbinic Midrash is anything but clear ! Joe Gatt (talk) 14:15, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Untitled[edit]

It is interesting that her name is also given as Merris or Merrhoe, and the name of her husband as Mered. Das Baz, aka Erudil 18:55, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Bitya or Batya?[edit]

I've always learned it as Batya. I don't know if Bitya works grammatically. She is renamed from Bat-Paroh (Daughter of Pharaoh) to Bat-Ya (Daughter of God) because she followed in the latter's ways instead of the former. I wonder what the correct pronunciation is. In Modern Israeli society there are many people named Batya but I don't know of any named Bitya. Any ideas? Valley2city 10:39, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
