While the new capital was in the process of building, the dispute between the king and the priests of Amen-Ra became more severe, and matters were much aggravated by Amenhetep IV.

At length the king left Thebes an took up his abode in his new capital, which he called "Khut-Aten," i.e., "Horizon of Aten," and as a sign of the entire severance of his connection with traditions of his house in respect of Amen-Ra he discarded his name "Amen-hetep" and called himself Khut-Aten i.e., "Glory of Aten," or, "Spirit of Aten." At the time he changed his Horus name of "Exalted One of the double plumes" to "Mighty Bull, beloved of Aten" {or, lover of Aten}, and he adopted as lord of the shrines of Nekhebet and Uatchet the title of "Mighty one of sovereignity in Khut-Aten," and as the Horus of gold he styled himself, "Exalter of the name Aten."
