Lehite PN 1. General, ca. 385 AD (Mormon 6:14)

See the suggestions for CUMENI and the discussion in the introduction concerning “-hah.” If Cumeni is also a PN, and they are related to each other, then the meaning “cumin” seems highly improbable. Better would be the stem kmn with a meaning such as “hidden.” In Aramaic (cf. Daniel 11:43), the root means “to lie in ambush.” With the meaning “Yahweh is hidden,” the name seems an unlikely one to give a child unless he was born at a particularly bad time (JH). At a time hen the LDS Book of Mormon still read Camenihah, Nibley compared with “Khamunira,” an Amarna personal name, perhaps equivalent of Ammunira, perhaps bearing the same relationship as Book of Mormon Ammonihah/Old World Ammunira (HWN in LID 27–28).

Cf. Sanskrit and Persian kan, “desire” (RFS).

For the byforms Cumeni/Cumenihah, cf. Book of Mormon MORONI/MORONIHAH and NEPHI/NEPHIHAH

Cf. Book of Mormon CUMENI, KISHKUMEN, KUMEN, KUMENONHI, COMNOR.

See CUMENIHAH.
