AMNIGADDAH

Jaredite PN		King (Ether 1:14–15; 10:31)

Without knowing the cultural and linguistic antecedents of Jaredite, it is at best speculative to offer etymologies of the Jaredite onomasticon. 

With this caveat, and assuming that Semitic etymologies are apposite, then Amnigaddah could be composed of the elements ʾmn, and gd, “craftsman; faithfulness; 
truth” and “luck, fortune, fate,” respectively. Though I am unaware of a feminine form of gd, -gaddah probably represents an abstract, for which the feminine form 
was also used. With 1c.s. pronominal suffix on the end of the first word, represented by the i vowel, the name could mean “my maker is fate.”
