I think that the "hm" (glyph U36) in the name may rather have been intended to mean something like "His majesty, Iwnw", or "The majesty of Iwnw", rather than "servant" or "priest" of Iwnw. This said, I would think there was still a tacit sense that any such exalted person was indeed a "servant" of the god or place in question. After all, how could they have achieved the prestige that they enjoyed in this life if this was not so?

See Gardiner's Egyptian Grammar p. 520 and p. 74. Also see Faulkner's Concise Dictionary p. 169.

There may also be more about this in Junker's Giza 1 - pp. 133ff - might be worth a look through this, I don't know. [giza.fas.harvard.edu]

I would also add that "Iwnw" in this name is likely not referring to an Earth-bound location (Heliopolis), but rather to the Iwnw of the night-sky circumpolar region as referenced so often in the PT's and CT's.
