Jaredite GN		Plains (Ether 14:15–16)

Until it is demonstrated that the Jaredites came from an Ancient Near Eastern cultural background, proposals for Jaredite names are at best dubious. With this 
caveat, perhaps Sumerian aga/uku-uš, “soldier,” might come into question. Sumerian ukuš, “cucumber, squash, gourd” (see Akkadian qiššu) is a distant 
possibility (RFS).

This name may be related etymologically to Akish. Since they are in the same geographic area, they may be variant stems from the same root and express a 
common quality.
