Nephite PN 1. Soldier, late 4th c. AD (Moroni 9:7)

AMORON is most likely a late variant of the earlier AMARON or AMMORON. See the same for a discussion of the etymology.

Notes

It is unlikely that the a vowel is a prosthetic aleph (RFS) because there is no consonant cluster to force a helping vowel.

CF. Book of Mormon AMARON, AMMARON, AMMORON, MORON, MORONI, MORONIHAH, et al.
