Jaredite PN 1. King (Ether 1:22; 10:13)
Lehite PN 2. Rebel, ca. 72 BC (Alma 50:28; 51:29)
Lehite GN 3. City and land, named from No. 2, ca. 72 BC (Alma 50:25–26; Alma 59:5)

No etymology is suggested.

Nibley has suggested Egyptian PN (of princes) mry.itn, “beloved of Aton,” and mry.imn, “beloved of Amon” (LID, 29). But, despite the problem of using Egyptian to explain a Jaredite PN, it would be difficult to explain how a Lehite could have a name based on a non-Israelite theophoric element.

Cf. Book of Mormon MORIANCUMER, MAHONRI Moriancumer, MORON, CORIANTON, MORIANTUM, GADIANTON, CUMORAH, et al.
