Pearl of Great Price PN 1. OLIBLISH (BofAbraham facsimile 2:2,4 ∥KOLOB ∥RAUKEEYANG ∥SHAUMAHYEEM)

Possibly hypothetical Egyptian *wn-nb-n-isw “The-lord-of-the-ancient-ones-exists,” or the like, similar to the construction of Wnn-nfrw, Onnophris, “Beauty-, Goodness-, Spontaneous-vitality-exists; (epithet of) Osiris.”[1] Note that Egyptian nb is transliterated in cuneiform as nip, and that -n- is a variant with -l-.
