Said to be the worshiper of Aten or Aton, which seems to me to be but  
the
Hebrew אדון ADON, and which the Greeks feminized into Pallas-Athena,
namely בעלת אדינה BAALAT-ADINAH.

It appears to me that ADON is made up of עד AD and ON, where
AD, or עז AZ, may refer to any "strong" thing, and where ON is  
הנו HIYNO.
