Nevertheless, occasional EGYPTIAN names seem to appear in Iron Age II Israel. For example, pkmt, found on a "storage jar from Lachich, from the end of the Judaean Monarchy... seems to be EGYPTIAN." Such an EGYPTIAN name could be from P3-Kmt "The-Egyptian," whcih would fit in with the form of other possible Egyptian names in the Book of Mormon, such as PAHORON/PAHORAN as P3-Ḥrn "The-Hurrian, Horite, Horus," etc., PAANCHI as P3-̾ˁnh̬y "The-Living-One," etc., all part of a related family.
Indeed, years ago Nibley suggested several EGYPTIAN derivations: the name “resembles that borne by some of the last priest governors of EGYPT, whose names are rendered Pa-menech, Pa-mnkh, Pamenches, etc. The Greeks (who often furnish the key to the correct reading of EGYPTIAN names) put the guttural before the nasal Pachomios ["The Eagle"]. The most famous man of the name commanded all the forces of the south and was also high priest of Horus. At least one other governor-general of EGYPT bore the name” (LID, 25, 29).
Confer possibly the EGYPTIAN PN p3-kmn, Pakamen, “blind man” (LID, 28; ABM, 284; EHA, citing Wb V, 107). See also RFS, Egyptianisms, p. 6, for p3-kwmni' [I am unable to find this item in my own work]' and other suggestions. Nibley suggests that Pakumeni is the name of an EGYPTIAN hero (ABM, 286).
