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
