Lehite PN		Apostle, ca. 30 AD (3 Nephi 19:4)

This name appears to be an expanded form of the previous name, Kumen, for which see the same. The element -onhi remains unexplained. 

Nibley, ABM, 238, suggested reading Kumen-onhi, an Egyptian-Hittite city name for Kumani.

Cf. Book of Mormon Cumen, Cumeni, Cumenihah, et al.
