Jaredite PN 1. King (Ether 1:30–31; 7:27)

No etymology is suggested.

The linguistic connections of Jaredite names are not known and speculative at best.

Reynolds, Commentary on the Book of Mormon, VI, p. 46, has suggested, “(Possibly from shaal [šʾl], ‘to ask for, to desire’), meaning a man of prayer.”

One might consider Sumerian ŠU-LÁ (= Akkaidan qiptu) "belief, trust" (Borger, Mesopotamisches Zeichenlexikon, 370; CAD Q 260-63). This is not known, however, as a name even in Sumerian.

There has been a tendency to connect the Jaredites with the Olmec. It is not certain what language the Olmec spoke. It was probably not Maya. One might, nonetheless, be tempted to connect this king with Maya xul "carving" (Coe, Reading the Maya Glyphs, 166). Such a reading does not conform to typical Classical Maya naming practices.
