Jaredite PN 1. Son of JARED (Ether 6:14)

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.

Although the eytmologies of JAREDITE names are uncertain, one may compare the HEBREW verbal root qam in the qal 3 m.s. jussive with a suppressed name of diety, thus, yaqom [yahu or el], meaning "let [the Lord or God] arise, rise up."
