    Could the term “night companions” have any other implications? I’m really interested in knowing more…

    @1: No, Sameera comes from Samara, which means “he/she engaged in conversation during the night”. Sameera is someone who engages in this activity, it simply means “conversationer” (if that were a word), except that the conversation happens during the night.

    In Arab culture, people used to stay up at night and pass the night away in conversation with their beloved friends and relatives. For this reason Sameera connotes “good friend”, “close friend” and has no sexual connotation.
