them are convincing. Hebrew ''kmn'', meaning “to hide, to hide up,” might give a translation “Hidden-away.” Cf. also the Ugaritic PNs ''kmn'' and ''bn kmn'', etymology unknown
 
([[Jo Ann Hackett|JH]]). Less likely is the common Semitic vocabel ''kam''(''m'')''ō''/''ūn*'', from which we get our English word “cumin,” giving the translation, “(Place of) Cumin,” or reading with a
 
gentilic ending, “(The One of) Cumin.

Jaredite PN 1. King (Alma 56:13; 57:7, 8, 12, 23, 31, 34)

This entry is not finished

Etymology

No etymology is suggested.

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
