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 possible that the name may be related to the Biblical Heth, the son of Canaan, the son of Canaan, the son of Ham, the son of the patriarch Noah (Gen 10:15) (cf. also the name for the biblical Hittites ḫty Hittite HALOT, the Akkadian ḫattu [Hittite], and the name in cuneiform texts for NW Syria).
