In ancient Egyptian, the phrase "Ny Har Lut Hotep" roughly translates to "there is no peace through the gate," or "there is no sanity at the place of judgement." A suitable translation of the crawling chaos. Many Egyptian phrases have been adapted into Arab texts; it may have been during some form of translation that the phrase was perverted into Nyarlathotep, which might have been where H.P. Lovecraft got the name for the deity.
