Lehite GN 1. City, ca. 6 BC (3 Nephi 9:8)

Etymology

This name may be an expansion of the biblical PN GAD (which see), and perhaps related to the PN GADIANTON (which see). It could be that the name is to be divided GADI-ANDI, in which the first part could have the 1st common singular possessive suffix and mean “my-good-fortune.” The last part of the name, -IANDI or -ANDI, remains unexplained. See, however, the EGYPTIAN name of a city in Lycia (Hittite territory in Anatolia), kadyanda.[1] (See PYH’s “Introduction” for “-nt-” constructions).

See GAD, GADIANTON/GADDIANTON, GADIOMNAH, GID.
