Unut (un, wenut) was originally a snake goddess and was called "The swift one".
"She came from province 15 in Upper Egypt and was worshipped with Thoth at the capital Hermopolis. Later she got a woman's body and a hare's head. She was taken into the cult of Horus and later by Re. There were five hieroglyphic signs of her but she was otherwise rarely spoken of in literature and inscriptions. A very exceptional sculpture of her has been found by American archaeologists and is probably the only one of its kind found so far. Her name was taken in to the highest royal position just once in the long Egyptian history. The only king with her name was Unas from dynasty five" from Gods of Ancient Egypt website.
