Means "she of the west". In Egyptian mythology she was the goddess representing the necropolis west of the Nile River and the consort of Aken. Typically depicted wearing the hieroglyph for 'west' on her head, she often appeared on tombs to welcome the deceased into the afterlife. She may also possibly be just an alternate form of Hathor or Isis, as she was closely linked with them.
