Etymology

Given the English pronunciation of the Book of Mormon PN OMNER as “ahm-ner”, (where with the initial vowel is pronounced as the /a/ in watch; as ɒmnɛr in the 1869 Deseret Alphabet; amner in SBL transliteration; IPA = ͻmnɛr), Omner might be composed of Hebrew ʿam from ‘mm “people, kinsman”, and Hebrew nēr “light”, as in Abner “Father-is-Light.” Omner could then mean, approximately, “The (Divine) Kinsman is Light” (JH).

See TEOMNER, TEANCUM, PAANCHI, PACHUS, PAHORAN, AMNOR, COMNOR, OMNI.
