Calm yourself down please.

What you are obviously not aware of is that the Hebrew translation for Egypt, used today even in Israel, is Mitzraim. Egyptian people are referred to as 'Mitzrim'. An Egyptian person is a 'Mitzri'.

Try to remember that the Torah is written in Hebrew and the words and names are translated to English for your convenience. Thus there are many names used in English which are actually Hebrew words which have a meaning.

The verses you are referring to are not names, they are peoples. The people of Mizraim are the Egyptians. The Cushites, etc.
