Etymology

Until possible language affinities for JAREDITE names can be determined, all suggestions for etymologies of JAREDITE names must remain more speculative than substantive. With that caveat, the onomasticon does offer etymologies for some JAREDITE names, especially if it is possible that some JAREDITE names were translated into NEPHITE, or were otherwise related to one or more Semitic languages.

If Sumerian can provide JAREDITE patterns, then perhaps the Sumerian PN kurum, king of Uruk (biblical Erech) Dynasty 4 might be a parallel (RFS). Sumerian kur means mountain.

Cf. Akkadian kurum III, “Ein Stück von Stemme” or Sumerian kurum, kur, “cut, divide, judge, pass sentence” and kur, “great, mountain, land” which appears in the name of the pilot of the ark in the Mesopotamian flood story, kurgal (RFS).

Cf. Book of Mormon CORIHOR, KORIHOR

*(RLDS has Corum in one place)
