Until there is a critical text available, an etymology is difficult *(Pre1981 editions read [[Jeneum / Joneum Variant|JONEAM]], while RLDS editions, based on the original Ms., had [[Jeneum / Joneum Variant|JONEUM]]).
 
 
The best derivation, based on the current Book of Mormon edition, is to read a 3m.s. jussive of nʿm, *”to speak oracles” ([[Robert F. Smith|RFS]]). See [http://scriptures.lds.org/en/jer/23/31#31 Jeremiah 23:31] for the verbal form.
 
 
Based on the former spelling, Joneam, “Jehovah is pleasant,” from the verbal root nʿm, *”to be pleasant,” with prefixed theophoric element for Jehovah. Biblical PNs from
 
the verbal root include naʿamān, Naaman, *noʿomī, Naomi ([[Jo Ann Hackett|JH]]), and  naʿam, Naam, and its feminine counterpart, naʿamah, Naamah (also a place-name) ([[John A. Tvedtnes|JAT]]).
 
 
In [http://scriptures.lds.org/en/luke/3/30#30 Luke 3:30], Jonan is reported as a descendant of David in tracing Jesus’ line ([[Jo Ann Hackett|JH]]).
 
 
Cf. Egyptian y3nwʿm, EA yanuamma, transliterations of Canaanite place name *yenôʿam (Albright, VESO, pp. 36, 447). The vowels of '''Jeneum''' are problematic, however
 
([[John A. Tvedtnes|JAT]], [[Robert F. Smith|RFS]]).
 
 
Cf. [[NEUM]], [[NEAS]]?
