I actually tried Marianne's suggestion of "start saying "Nib" over and over again as fast as you can." Several times.
I never got "Pip".


I never did either. But give /m/ or "Im" a go. I find it becomes "Mim" very fast. Also try /p/. I get "Pip" in one shot.

Manetho's Binothris perhaps derives from a later kinglist's "Biunetjer". I don't see that the N -> B here is necessarily an oral change.

I'm glad someone other than me pointed this out.
