Meaning of Amara

Amara is an indirect Quranic name for boys and girls that means “large group of ships sailing together”, “tribe”. It is derived from the Ain-M-R (lifetime, visit, build) root which is used in many places in the Quran.

Only he should visit or tend God’s houses of worship who believes in God and the Last Day, and is constant in prayer, and spends in charity, and stands in awe of none but God: for [only such as] these may hope to be among the right-guided! (Quran 9:18)
