Lehite PN 1. Contender for the Judgement seat, son of PAHORAN No. 1, d. 52 BC (Helaman 1:3, 7)

Etymology

PAANCHI is quite plausibly the EGYPTIAN name p3-ʿnh first attested in the Thirteenth Dynasty (ca. 1800-1600 B.C.)[1] becoming popular from the Twenty-First through Twenty-Seventh Dynasties,[2] and surviving until Roman times (transcribed into Greek as Ponchēs)[3] The name means "the living one."[4] (JG). Hugh Nibley has suggested that this is the same name as the Twenty-Fifth Dynasty Pharaoh,[5] although that pharaoh's name has also been read as Piye.[6]

It has been suggested that this name, found in HEBREW as paʿnēaḥ, in English as Paaneah, was given to Joseph by Pharaoh in Genesis 41:45[7] (RFS). The full name (Zaphnathpaaneah) fits a well-known naming pattern: dd-DN-iw=f-ʿnh "DN has said: 'he will live!'"[8] The hypochoristic form of the name iw=f-ʿnh is known from the Ptolemaic period, [9] but non-hypochoristic forms are known much earlier.

Cf. Book of Mormon PACUMENI, PAHORAN (PACHUS, PAGAG?), TEOMNER, TEANCUM.

See also the Philistine name ptgyh, a goddess worshiped in the PHILISTINE city of Ekron, possibly meaning “‘the goddess Gaia (Earth) who was worshiped in Pytho.’”[10]
