Etymology & Historical Origin - Amirah

Amirah is a feminine form of the Arabic masculine name Amir. The name Amir has two possible meanings depending on how the name is spelled. Amīr (with an accent over the “i”) means “prince, ruler” and Āmir (with an accent over the “a”) means “prosperous”. Generally speaking, Amīr is taken from the title of high office “Emir” which is used throughout the Muslim word. From this perspective, an Emir (fem. Amīrah) defines a “princely” person in command. In the United States, the female Amirah was popularized among African-Americans, a community that has often looked to Arabic names as a source of inspiration.

Popularity of the Name Amirah

Amirah is a pretty new name. It only first appeared on the American female naming charts in 2006 but didn’t really take hold until 2008. Actually we can’t even give Amirah that much credit. This is a rarely used name and still resides close to the bottom of the Top 1000 list of girl names given in the United States. Amira is actually the more popular of the two spellings, but Amirah is more fanciful with the added “h” on the end. That “h” somehow gives the name a little more flair. Amirah definitely sounds like a “princess” name so we get the attraction. Both Amira and Amirah are relatively underused names which mean they both provide an option for parents looking for something a little more original.
