Jaredite PN 1. King, son of SHEZ (Ether 1:23, 24; 10:4 (x2), 5, 8, 9)

Etymology

Until a possible language origin for JAREDITE can be determined, all suggestions for etymologies of JAREDITE names must remain more speculative than substantive.

Likely with Sumerian rib “surpassing, outstanding, massive; strong.”[1]

The -LIAN- element (as for -REAN- in IRREANTUM) might be derived from the Semitic root rwy “abundant waters,” with the nominalizing affix -n. In such an instance, the -r- following a bilabial plosive would perforce change to an -l-. Cf. Tupliaš River (Akkadian) = Duweirig.

Cf. also Riblah, "Fertility,"[2] city halfway between HAMATH & DAMASCUS, 11 km south of Qadesh, Syria, on the east bank of the Orontes (2 Kings 25:6, 18-21; Jeremiah 39:5-7; 52:26-27).
