AMULEK

Nephite PN		Prophet/missionary from Ammonihah, 1st c. BC (Alma 8:21; Ether 12:13)	

Probably a variant form from Mulek, on which see the same below. The initial vowel could be the vestiges of the definite article (see the discussion under “a-” in 
“Studies”), and would translate approximately “the Mulek.” A prosthetic aleph is not likely because there is no consonant cluster to dissolve.
