No we don't all agree that Moses had an Egyptian name. 
For one, Exodus doesn't agree. 
If we take Exodus as a historical document, as it claims to be, then 
when we have Moses being brought up in the pharaoh's house, that 
pharaoh could have been just as much Egyptian as when Marco Polo 
served the "Chinese" king while working in the house of Kublai Khan. 
There is nothing linguistically improbable with that understanding. 
There are several clues, taken individually don't mean much, but taken 
together suggests to me that the pharaoh of the Exodus could very well 
have been Hyksos.
