Etymology

Until possible language affinities for JAREDITE names can be determined, all suggestions for etymologies of JAREDITE names must remain more speculative than substantive. With that caveat, the onomasticon does offer etymologies for some JAREDITE names, especially if it is possible that some JAREDITE names were translated into NEPHITE, or were otherwise related to one or more Semitic languages.

The PN LIB may derive from the Sumerian lib “(to be) rich, well-off; high quality; (to be) happy” = Akkadian hadû, hidiātu, râšu, rāšû, rīšātu.[1] LIB may also derive from a Semitic source, e.g., Akkadian libbu, lib-bi “heart, center” (loanword in Sumerian lib “inner body; heart.”[2] = Ugaritic lb, Hebrew lēb, lēbāb).[3] Less likely is the derivation of LIB from the Sumerian lib “dazed silence, (deathly) silence; (to be) dazed” = Akkadian šaqummatu; cf. Sumerian lib4 “agitate,” and lib4-lib4 “plunderer.”[4]
