|Jaredite GN||1.||City and land (Ether 7:4, 9)|
|Lehite PN||2.||Apostate, executed ca. 91 B.C. (Alma 1:15; 2:20; 6:7; 14:16, 18; 15:15; 16:11; 24:29)|
|3.||Apostate group named from No. 2, termed “order of NEHOR”, “order and faith of NEHOR” , or “profession of NEHOR”|
No etymology is suggested for the JAREDITE GN. Note that NEHOR and KORIHOR, two of the three apostate preachers of the Book of Mormon (the third being SHEREM), bear names that probably are JAREDITE in origin, which may say something about those involved in apostate movements.
If the Lehite PN NEHOR is not dependent on the JAREDITE GN, then perhaps biblical names can be appealed to for the Lehite PN. Biblical Nahor, nāḥōr, the grandfather of ABRAHAM and Rebecca, and ABRAHAM's brother, immediately comes to mind. Unfortunately, it does not have a secure etymology in HEBREW. There is also a city in the Balikh valley of Old Babylonian SYRIA called naḫur (na-ḫu-urki). Also note the Palmyrene PN nḥwr (JH).
