Etymology & Historical Origin - Amare
Amare is a new induction into the panoply of American male names, apparently popularized by Amar’e Stoudemire, a basketball player who plays power forward and center for the New York Knicks (previously with the Phoenix Suns). Amar’e was a first round pick in the 2002 draft and won Rookie of the Year in 2003. He and his name immediately became famous. The origin of his name is unclear. We do know that “amare” means “to love” in Latin, but it is also said to mean “the Lord said” in Hebrew.
Popularity of the Name Amare
The masculine name Amare first appeared on the American charts in 2005 as the basketball star’s career was taking off. The name entered the charts at an impressive ranking of #630 – not popular by any means, but respectable first time position nonetheless. In the past few years, Amare (or Amar’e) has shown low-moderate success and doesn’t appear to be gaining any significant ground. The Latin meaning of the name (to love) is both positive and upbeat. The Hebrew meaning (God said) is both strong and decisive. It’s a cool, unique name that appeals to parents who like to go against the grain. We also like that it’s a Number Two in numerology which is apropos of the meaning “to love” since Two’s are all about loving and nurturing natures. There’s just something very affirming about the name Amare.
