Meaning & History

In the Book of Mormon, the character of Ammon is one of the four sons of King Mosiah, who initially opposes the Church, but is converted alongside his brothers and Alma the Younger after an experience with an angel, and becomes a missionary to the Lamanites. Joseph Smith likely reappropriated the name from Genesis 19:38, where it appears as an alternate name for Benammi, forefather of the Ammonites.
