Upper Egypt called Upper because it is higher in elevation than Lower Egypt, more than 100 m higher...

Before the dynasties (before King Menes) Egypt was separated into two lands, Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt, Every country contains its own deities (Gods) and habits and crowns...Menes came and united them into one country, after that he called The Lord of Two Lands, below there is a picture taken from Kom Ombo Temple, showing the both crowns and the both Goddesses , on your right hand you will find Goddess Wadjet Goddess of Lower Egypt wearing Lower Egypt Crown, on your left hand Nekhbet Goddess of Upper Egypt and wearing Upper Egypt Crown:
