Jaredite GN 1. A hill (Ether 7:9)
Biblical PN 2. Son of JOSEPH (2 Nephi 17:2, 5, 8, 9, 17 = Isaiah 7:2, 5, 8, 9, 17; 19:9, 21 (x2) = Isaiah 9:9, 21; 21:13 (x3) = Isaiah 11:13)


Until a possible language origin for JAREDITE can be determined, all suggestions for etymologies of JAREDITE names must remain more speculative than substantive.

EPHRAIM is cited in the Book of Mormon several times, once as the name of a JAREDITE hill, the remaining times as the name of the biblical son of JOSEPH in the ISAIAH passages of the Book of Mormon but is not otherwise used as a personal name.

The place name EPHRAIM may be a NEPHITE substitute for, or equivalent of, the JAREDITE name. (JAT) EPHRAIM may possibly derive from the HEBREW root *prh and have the meaning "grainland, pasture-land."
