Etymology & Historical Origin - Armani
The name Armani is indelibly linked to the successful Italian fashion designer, Giorgio Armani. As a forename, Armani is considered unisex and has only been in use since the mid-1990s (which incidentally corresponded with Armani’s brand expansion into America’s mass market). It appears as if Armani as a given name is used mainly in the United States, a nation willing to coin a name from almost anything. Researching the etymological roots of Armani was a bit more laborious. For one, the name could come from “Arman”, a name of Persian origins from the Kazakh language meaning “dream”. The other (and probably more likely) origin is from “Armand” which is the French version of Herman. Herman in turn is a Germanic name from the elements “hari” (army) and “man” (man).
Popularity of the Name Armani
Armani is more popular for baby boys than for girls, although it is used on both genders and therefore unisex. Since the fashion designer is a man, Armani feels masculine in a lot of ways, but the “i” ending is pretty androgynous and works either way. It seems clear that parents who opt for this name are likely fashion fans, but the Italian Armani is also a cool sounding name. It’s never been hyper-trendy but it does have unmistakable pop-culture influence which causes one to consider: can this name stand the test of time?

Armani - Boy Baby Name - Historic Figures
Giorgio Armani (11 Jul 1934 - Present) - Giorgio Armani is probably the most successful fashion designer to ever come out of Italy. As a youngster, Armani was always drawn to medicine, which he studied at university and practiced a little during his military service. This experience made him realize he wasn’t cut out for the medical field and he soon found himself employed as a window dresser. That turned into a position of Buyer at a men’s store until he launched his own label in 1974 at the age of 40. In 1980, Armani was selected to design Richard Gere’s clothes in the movie “American Gigolo” which instantly earned him accolades and fame. Today his fashion empire takes in over $1.5 billion in annual revenues, and this self-made man is worth around $7 billion himself – all thanks to the classic, timeless elegance of his clothing. Armani has said that he took much of his inspiration from England: "I remember seeing some yellow cardigans in a small boutique and everyone thought I was insane. Yellow cardigans were what the Duke of Windsor was about, they were not something for the average man. The entire idea of such clothing was so outré, so elitist... Very, very English."
