Etymology & Historical Origin - Jamari

Jamari is an elaboration of Jamar, both of which are names mainly used within the African-American community. Most likely Jamar was created from Jamal, which comes from an Arabic word (jamāl) meaning ‘good looks, beauty’. This is a bit of a stretch however, because Jamari is more or less a modern invention with no specific meaning, simply created by putting sounds together that parents found appealing for their little boys. Jamari is also the name of a river in western Brazil, although it’s not clear where it gets its name (either from the Portuguese or from the indigenous Indians who dwelled there first).

Popularity of the Name Jamari

Jamari first appeared on the U.S. popularity charts for boys in 1997. As a newly invented name, Jamari has shown remarkable success ascending the male naming charts from complete obscurity to mild-moderation in just over 10 years. Keep in mind, though, this could also be a little misleading. Nationwide, the name shows relatively little success, but when you consider the African-American community exclusively (roughly 13% of the total U.S. population),and the fact that Jamari is a name almost entirely embraced within this segment of the population, then the name is actually very successful and heavily used. Jamari has a nice three-syllable sing-song quality. It’s a handsome name – both gentle and strong at the same time.
