Lehite PN 1. Soldier and spy, ca. 87 BC (Alma 2:22)

Etymology

Perhaps this is an infinitive of mhr, “hasten,” with preposition l (RFS). Though some think this unlikely as a name (JAT), confer the biblical PN MAHER-SHALAL-HASH-BAZ in Isaiah 8:1 & 3, which contains the same root in the first part of the name. Also possible is a reading of the name as two elements, lim and her, though an etymology is not readily apparent. See LIMHAH for a discussion of the element lim.

Perhaps EGYPTIAN rʿ-m-ḥr is worth investigation (Nibley via Urrutia).

Cf. Book of Mormon LIMHAH, LIMHI, and perhaps LIMNAH, CORIHOR and COHOR.

Variants

Deseret Alphabet: 𐐢𐐆𐐣𐐐𐐇𐐡 (lɪmhɛr)
