Amir (name)

Amir (also spelled Ameer or Emir, Arabic: أمير, Turkish: Emir, Persian: امير, Hebrew: אמיר, pronounced [aːmˈiːr]) is a masculine name with three meanings, one is Arabic/Hebraic origin derived from the three letters AMR which means 'to give orders' or a "Prince". The title Emir in Arabic, which is essentially the same word as Amir, therefore means: "one who gives orders". It also means summit of a tree in Hebrew or a pile of harvested wheet (עמיר); and other one in Persian is pronounced in the same way but it has a different meaning, it consists of two parts; "A" which means "Un" and "mir" which is the root of the verb "Mordan مُرَدن" ( to die ), so Amir in Persian means "the one who [his spirit and his memory] will never die."
