This list is intended as a quick reference for individuals mentioned in The Book of Mormon.

Notation[edit]

Names with superscripts (e.g., Nephi¹) are numbered according to the index in the LDS scripture, The Book of Mormon.[1] Missing indices indicate people in the index who are not in The Book of Mormon; for instance, Aaron¹ is the biblical Aaron, brother of Moses.

  • Bold type indicates the person was an important religious figure, such as a prophet or a missionary.
  • Italic type indicates the person was a king, chief judge or other ruler.
  • Underlined type indicates the person was a historian or record keeper; one whose writing (abridged or not) is included in The Book of Mormon.
  • Combined typefaces indicate combined roles. For example, bold italic indicates an individual was both a religious and secular leader.
