What were the names of the Pharaohs in Genesis and Exodus?

The Egyptian kings mentioned in the stories of Abraham, Joseph, and Moses do not have any given names but only their title "pharaoh". I am Interested in learning about Egypt and I have heard some suggestions as who they were (Thutmose iii, Rameses II) but no archeological attestations of Hebrew slavery exist in those periods.

Exodus 1:1 - 22

ESV - 1 These are the names of the sons of Israel who came to Egypt with Jacob, each with his household: 2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah.
