Addis is a boy’s name of ancient origins. A herald of new beginnings, it has its roots in the Semitic languages, including Amharic, Hebrew, and Arabic. In Hebrew, Addis means “son of Adam,” “man of the red earth,” and “earth,” after the Biblical first man, whom God created from the red dust of the earth. In Amharic, Addis means “new flower.” When the capital city of Ethiopia was founded in the 19th century, it was called Addis Ababa to symbolize the promise and rebirth of a new bloom. A name that spans continents, languages, and people, Addis evokes the rock, dirt, and flora of this one planet that all humans share.
