Lehite PN 1. NEPHITE scribe and historian, son of ENOS 4th – 5th c. BC (Jarom 1:1, 14; Omni 1:1)

Etymology

The PN JAROM may be a hypocoristic form of the hypothetical Jaromel/Jaromiah, from the Hebrew rām, “to rise, be exalted,” in the qal 3 m.s. jussive, with the meaning “may/let [God/the Lord] be exalted.” The printer’s manuscript PN variant form JORAM[1] may also arguably be from the HEBREW yôrām, “Jehovah is exalted.”

Cf. Book of Mormon RAMAH, CUMORAH, JEREMIAH, JACOM, and NAHOM.
