Jaredite GN 1. "Large, to exceed all," waters of, north of RAMAH and OGATH (Ether 15:8, 10)

Until possible language affinities for JAREDITE names can be determined, all suggestions for etymologies of JAREDITE names must remain more speculative than substantive. With that caveat, the onomasticon does offer etymologies for some JAREDITE names, especially if it is possible that some JAREDITE names were translated into NEPHITE, or were otherwise related to one or more Semitic languages.

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).

Cf. Book of Mormon RIPLAH, RIPLAKISH, CORIANTUM, MORIANCUMER, LIB, CUMORAH, IRREANTUM
