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.

Highly doubtful are suggestions based on Semitic derivations, such as Old Akkadian ḫuriānum, a plant, ḫurium (GOA, 132) and ḫurrum, “hole, mine” (GOA, 133) (JAT).

Cf. Book of Mormon COROM, et al., KORIHOR
