Lehite PN 1. NEPHITE warrior (Moroni 9:2)

Etymology

Possibly derived from Hebrew ʹāmar "to speak."[1](JAT) If so, it may be a short-form (hypocoristicon) with the common Semitic ending on PNs and GNs -ōn for "Word (of God); (God) has spoken, commanded" (PYH). Cf. biblical Hebrew ʹimrô "his command" (Job 20:29), and possibly forming the Hebrew PNs Omri and Imri (1 Chronicles 9:4) (JH).

Also possibly from gentilic Hebrew ʹēmôrî "Amorite" (Genesis 10:16; Ezekiel 16:3, 45; Amos 2:9, 10).

See EMER, AMORON, AMMORON, COMRON, MORON, OMER.
