Are you referring here to the formatting of a Pharoah's Nomen name? If so, then according to where you seem to be going with this I should think the glyph would have been more likely have been meant to represent Re (i.e., a disk), than a placenta or an eclipsed moon. I suppose you could wander into there having been some wordplay with Glyph O50, but then you'd really be pushing things.

In any event, it seems to me that to make any headway on your theory you are going to (at least) have to grapple with the finding that an eclipsed moon will at best have the color of a a very old and tawny brownish-red color, while a rising or setting sun can appear quite red - especially under dry sandy conditions.

That said, the issue of the meaning and context of the word "Akhet" is a very interesting one - and something I am currently delving into.

Good luck with your researches.
