And welcome to the Amarna Tarpits!

Smenkhkare existed. We have his body (KV55). He was married to Meritaten but sired his son, Tutankhamun on a full sister.

Nefertiti seems a good choice for Neferneferuaten, it was after all her name, but there's evidence she was buried as Queen, not a King in the Amarna Royal Tomb. Meritaten is another choice but there is that box problem. There doesn't seem to be any reason beyond her name for picking on little Neferneferuaten tasherit.

One possibility is upon the death of Smenkhkara there was a disputed succession with what one may call the conservative 'back to the old ways' crowd backing infant Tut and the Atenists trying to set up Nefertiti or Neferneferuaten tasherit with Meritaten's support. We know which side won.
