Etymology

NOAH is a name given to figures and locations in JAREDITE and NEPHITE history, and is well known from the patriarchal narrative in the Bible. The biblical name is usually derived from the biblical root meaning "to rest;" however, Genesis 5:29 seems to derive the name from the Hebrew word, nแธฅm, "to comfort." Some scholars have argued that NOAH does not derive from the Hebrew noah, "rest," but may derive from some other, possibly non-Semitic, source (cf. Nibley, An Approach to the Book of Mormon, [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book/Provo, Utah: Foundation for Ancient Studies, 1988], p. 290; see also N.A. Nozadze, Vocabulary of the Hurrian Language, [Tblisi: SABC, 2007], 250).
