What's in a name?: Nephi

Keywords

Ancient Near East, Language, Book of Mormon, Names

Abstract

Though the name Nephi conforms in some ways to common Semitic patterns, none of the possible consonantal roots that appear in Hebrew can be applied to the name. Other possible sources such as Ugaritic or Egyptian may be considered.
