Jaredite GN 2. JAREDITE ruler (Ether 7:22 (x2))

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.

NIMROD is a JAREDITE GN and PN that may be Semitic in origin: cf. HEBREW marad "to rebel"; Arabic marada "to be bold and audacious in acts of rebellion and disobedience"; Geez marada "to run strenuously; to attack."
