Lukasz Tobola, «The Divine Name Chemosh: A New Etymological Proposal», Vol. 94 (2013) 573-575
This short note discusses the possible etymology of the divine name Chemosh. It seems to be derived from the same root as the rare adjective kummusu, synonymous with the Akkadian divine epithet rašbu, 'awesome'. Consequently, the name of the god Chemosh can be interpreted as 'Redoubtable'.
