Asenath, or Osnat, was Joseph's "Egyptian" wife, but she was actually not Egyptian, she was Jewish by blood and given up for adoption to the Egyptians.

Joseph's father was Jacob who was married to Rachel and Leah. Leah had a daughter named Dina. Dina was raped and Asenath was the baby from the rape. Asenath was raised by Egyptians but was actually Joseph's cousin.

I just found out I have an ancestor who had this name. My dad says her nickname was "Senna."
