Etymology & Historical Origin - Samiyah

Samiyah is an embellished spelling of Samiya (سامية), a female name of Arabic origin and equivalent to the masculine Sāmi meaning “elevated, sublime”. Although Samiya is a common name among Arabic speakers, in terms of the Western World (besides Arab immigrants) this is a name which has mainly been embraced within the African-American community, such as African-American poet Samiya Bashir. Not only that, but the “-iyah” name suffix has been going gangbusters ever since music fans were introduced to Aaliyah in the 1990s. Don’t believe us? Just consider the following names Samiyah joins on the U.S. charts today: Aaliyah, Amiyah, Aniyah, Jaliyah, Janiyah, Kaliyah, Laniyah, Maliyah, Mariyah, Saniyah, Taliyah, Taniyah, Zaniyah and Zariyah.
