According to the Book of Mormon, Nephi (Hebrew נפי Nəp̄î; BoM Arabic نافي Nāfī) was a great prophet and was the son of Lehi, so sometimes called Nephi, son of Lehi. He lived around 600 B.C. He was the ancestor of the race of people known as the Nephites, who lived in the Americas from around 590 B.C. to 400 A.D., when they were destroyed by the Lamanites because of their wickedness.
There was also a region called the Land of Nephi, and a City of Nephi.
