Lehite PN 1. King of land of ISHMAEL, 1st c. BC (Alma 17:21, 24, 25 (x2); 18:1, 5 (x2), 8, 9, 10, 18, 22, 31, 33; 19:6, 17, 30, 33; 20:1, 3, 4 (x2), 6, 8 (x2), 9, 11, 13 (x2), 14, 15, 24, 26 (x2), 27, 28 (x2), 30; 21:14, 18, 19, 22, 23; 22:1 (x2), 4; 24:5)

Etymology

This name is not immediately suggestive of an etymology. Perhaps something like the root suggested for LAMAN, with the second vowel a changing to an o by the Canaanite shift (/ā/>/ō/), and with 1c.s. pronominal suffix /ī/ or a gentilic ending /ī/.

Reynolds & Sjodahl first connected LAMONI to LAMAN, though without explaining how the two were related (R&S, 26). The connection was made again, but this time the gentilic ī ending was suggested (JAT & RFS),[1] similar to the gentilic “ISRAELITE.”

Less likely is an archaic form of the HEBREW for “to me,” “for me,” “mine.” This would also be unlikely as a name (JH).
