From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    perfect, a place (probably the village of Salim) some 2 miles
    east of Jacob's well. There is an abundant supply of water,
    which may have been the reason for Jacob's settling at this
    place (Gen. 33:18-20). The Revised Version translates this word,
    and reads, "Jacob came in peace to the city of Shechem," thus
    not regarding it as a proper name at all.

From: Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's)

 Shalem, same as Salem
