Jaredite GN		Waters, meaning “large, to exceed all” (Ether 15:8)

No etymology is suggested.

As suggested for the preceding name, this name may be composed of two elements, ripli and ancum. The former may be identical with ripla; the latter may occur in the
Book of Mormon GN Moriancumer. The Book of Mormon itself supplies the gloss, “large, or to exceed all.”
