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.

Various suggestions have been made, none of which are convincing: Old Akkadian (Ur III) river name ÍD E-ur-tum (GOA, 8) (JAT). Hebrew ḫarṭōm, meaning a "soothsayer-priests" a loan word into Hebrew from the Egyptian ḫr.tp "reader-priest and magician" (HALOT)[1] (RFS).

Variants

Notes


  1. See the Neo-Assyrian borrowing ḫarṭibi, "dream interpreter" (AHw, CAD H:116)
