I'm not sure whether this would fit in the "Famous Persons" category, or if it would go in the "Personal Impression", but I know that it has a place in the Pop Culture category, because of Horus Lupercal from Warhammer 40, 000.

Actually, that would be HORACE Slughorn. Nonrelated name.

Horus is, obviously, an Egyptian name, and BTN states that it's a Greek form of Egyptian Heru which is of unknown meaning.

Horace comes from the Roman family name, possibly derived from Latin hora "hour, time, season.

I think they only sound similar in English.

Yes, but it could, in theory, be a variant of Horace, if the parents were unaware it was unrelated and just wanted a different spelling. Amelia and Emilia aren't related at all, but people still assume they're variants.

The name 'Horus' is a stem from the ancient Egyptian word 'her' which was the preposition for 'above' or 'over', implying that Horus (Heru) is the 'one who is above'.
