At first glance this name looks like it might be JAREDITE in origin, because it begins with an otherwise exclusively JAREDITE name element, kish. However, the biblical PN KISH, and the observation that the element kumen, and names with similar elements, KUMEN (Lehite PN), KUMENONHI (Lehite PN), CUMENI (Lehite GN) and CUMENIHAH (Lehite PN) do not appear to be JAREDITE, would suggest that KISHKUMEN is Lehite. For possible etymologies, see KISH and CUMENI.
