For the etymology see the standard biblical commentaries. <ref>Some scholars have argued that Noah is not a Semitic name derived from “rest,” as most of the biblical commentaries maintain. As one proposed option, the Hurrian language has been mentioned (Nibley, ABM, p. 290). The biblical name for the place the ark landed, the mountains of Ararat, located by Christian traditions in Eastern Turkey, means the mountains of Urartu, an Iron Age kingdom of Eastern Turkey that perhaps was founded by remnants or other ethnic Hurrians at the end of the upheavals of the Late Bronze Age. In any case, the discussion over the etymology of biblical Noah only has bearing on the Book of Mormon if the discussion sheds light of the true etymology of a non-Semitic Noah. Perhaps when the dust settles, it will be possible to suggest that the correct etymology of Noah may point to possibilities for Jaredite affinities.</ref>

Biblical PN 1. Patriarch at the time of the Flood (Alma 10:22; 3 Nephi 22:9 (x2); Ether 6:7)

Lehite GN 4. City and land, ca. 72 BC (Alma 16:3; 49:12, 13, 14, 15)

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.

NOAH is both a PN and GN in JAREDITE and NEPHITE history, and is well known from the patriarchal narrative in the Bible. The biblical name is usually derived from the fairly common Semitic root nūḫ meaning "to rest." However, Genesis 5:29 seems to derive the name from the HEBREW word, nḥm, "to comfort."

Partly because biblical Noah predates the patriarchs, it has been argued by some scholars that NOAH does not derive from either nūḫ or nḥm, but may derive from some other, possibly non-Semitic, source.[1]

The Jaredite names may have been translated from JAREDITE into NEPHITE.

Notes


  1. For a discussion see HALOT, which, besides the two Hebrew etymologies, states, “? Short form of Hurrian Naḫmulel.” Confer also Hugh Nibley, An Approach to the Book of Mormon (Salt Lake City: Deseret Book/Provo, Utah: Foundation for Ancient Studies, 1988), 290; and N.A. Nozadze, Vocabulary of the Hurrian Language (Tbilisi: SABC, 2007), 250.
