From the project website (accessed 2019-10-01):

The online database Persons and Names of the Middle Kingdom (PNM) is developed as part of the project “Umformung und Variabilität im Korpus altägyptischer Personennamen 2055–1550 v. Chr.,” funded by the Fritz Thyssen Foundation. The database is currently under development. It will include data on Egyptian Middle Kingdom personal names, people, written sources, titles, and dossiers of persons attested in various sources. It is envisaged that when finished the dataset will cover about 35000 attestations of personal names. It is also foreseen to study the temporal, regional, and social distribution of personal names. The results of the study shall be published as a book.
