Nefer

The Egyptian hieroglyph for "good, well, beautiful" in Gardiner's sign list is numbered F35. The triliteral Egyptian hieroglyph F35 has sometimes been explained as a representation of a lute. Rather than a lute, the hieroglyph is a representation of the heart and trachea, it may have been the esophagus and heart. The striations of the windpipe only appear in the hieroglyph following the Old Kingdom of Egypt; the lower part of the sign has always been the heart, for the markings follow the form of a sheep's heart. The term nfr has been incorporated into many names in Ancient Egypt. Examples include Nefertiti and Neferhotep; the term was consecutively positive considering that it refers to the heart, which to the ancient egyptians was the home of feelings and intent. Some scholars suggest that it was used in ancient Egyptian construction where'nfrw' was used to denote'level zero' of a building and in accounting where'nfr' would refer to a zero balance; the term was used as a prefix of the name Neferpitou which comes from an Egyptian god, Nefertem, in the anime series Hunter x Hunter.

Nefer was an ancient Egyptian pharaoh who ruled for two years, one month, a day, from 2197–2193 BCE, according to the Turin Canon, though he reigned during the reign of Pepi II Neferkare. Http://www.egyptianmyths.net/nefer.htm
