Etymology

Nibley has suggested EGYPTIAN p3-ḥsy, “he DN is praised” (LID, 28). PACHUS is much less likely to have anything to do with the EGYPTIAN PN hes or khesi, “praised” (HWN).

Even less likely is a corruption of the Meriotic PN “Pakazi” (SC, p. 194). A long short is perhaps EGYPTIAN prkš, “house of Cush” (RFS, Egyptianisms, p. 6).

Cf. Book of Mormon PAANCHI, PAHORAN, PAGAG (?)
