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

PAANCHI is likely 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] but that Pharaoh's name has been reread as Piye.[6]

Robert Smith has suggested that perhaps this is the name given to Joseph by Pharaoh, paʿnēaḥ, Paaneah in Genesis 41:45. (RFS) The full name (Zaphnath-paaneah) fits a well-known Egyptian name pattern: dd-DN-iw=f-ʿnh "DN has said: 'he will live!'"[7] The hypochoristic form of the name iw=f-ʿnh is known from the Ptolemaic period,[8] 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.’”[9]
