Etymology & Historical Origin - Amari
Amari is a recent American coinage and a gender-neutral name (it is also used with light frequency in Australia; mostly for boys). There are three possible reasons why modern parents are choosing the name Amari for their children. The first, and most obvious, is because “amari” is the Latin word for “loved, to be loved”. Secondly, Amari is often considered a Hindu name from the Sanskrit अमर (“amar”) meaning “immortal, eternal”. Finally, the masculine name ‘Ammar (عمّار) means “virtuous, pious” in Arabic. In all cases, these potential etymologies are quite favorable with all-around positive meanings. Amari is a poetic sounding name yet it imbues a sense of powerful strength at the same time. It’s for this reason that neither gender can claim it fully as their own. Amari works equally well for both girls and boys.
Popularity of the Name Amari
Amari first appeared on the female naming charts in 1996 and then on the male charts the following year in 1997. The name demonstrated pretty quick success for both genders, although it’s bestowed on baby boys at twice the rate it is for girls. In both cases, the name has reached quasi-moderate levels of usage which makes it familiar yet not overdone. Amari has also enjoyed particular success among African-Americans in the United States. Other variations of the name (Damari, Jamari and Kamari) have popped onto the charts following Amari. As a newly embraced name, Amari has yet to prove his/her staying power on the charts. We’re not sure if this one is a fleeting fad or here to stay for “eternity”. It’s a pretty cool name for a boy and a lovely sounding name for a girl. After all, every baby is meant “to be loved”.
