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.

As was mentioned with CORIANTON, feline etymology has been suggested for this and other, mostly JAREDITE names.

If Sumerian can be used to explain JAREDITE names, then perhaps the suggestion of Sumerian kur, “mountain” + an “heaven” + dingir (and its variants*) “god, divinity, divine” (RFS) would yield “The heavenly mountain of god.”
