Jaredite PN 1. King (Ether 1:9-10; 11:10-11)

Etymology

Until possible language affinities for JAREDITE names can be determined, all suggestions for etymologies of JAREDITE names must remain more speculative than substantive. With that caveat, the onomasticon does offer etymologies for some JAREDITE names, especially if it is possible that some JAREDITE names were translated into NEPHITE, or were otherwise related to one or more Semitic languages.

It is tempting to relate this PN to Semitic “brother.” However, until JAREDITE can be connected to a known, ancient language or culture, such guesses are at best plausible.
