Lehite PN Rebel king, leader of the king-men, ca. 63 BC (Alma 62:6–9)

Nibley has suggested Egyptian p3-ḥsy, “he [DN] is praised” (LID, 30). 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).
