A theophoric is that element of a personal name in which the god is mentioned, as Jeho or –jah (for YHWH) in Jehoshaphat or Elijah. Israelites compounded their names with theophorics of YHWH, or of epithets of YHWH (El, Baal, Amm, Zur, etc.). Each of the Transjordanian peoples shows a similar pattern with its national god (e.g., Moabite Kemosh).
