This article refutes a polemical claim that Book of Mormon proper names are not translatable, only transferable from one language to another. The fact that no Book of Mormon names appear in Central America does not prove the Book of Mormon to be false. The author cites Book of Mormon names that have Hebrew origins and shows Mayan similarities to Book of Mormon names.
