Discussion: Every extant occurrence of this name in O is spelled Morionton. Cowdery changed Morionton to Morianton in P for all but two times, in Alma 55:33b and 59:5. The instances in the Book of Ether are not extant in O, but since it is a different personage and there is no textual evidence from O, his name was probably Morianton.
Summary: Skousen accepts Morionton for personage in Alma, and Morianton for personage in Ether.
