Meaning:earth, man of the red earth, Adam's son; new flower
Addis is a boy’s name of ancient origins. A herald of new beginnings, it has its roots in the Semitic languages. 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, it means “new flower.” When the capital city of Ethiopia was founded in the 19th century, it was called Addis Adaba to symbolize the promise and rebirth of a new bloom. A name that spans continents, languages, and peoples, Addis evokes the rock, dirt, and flora of this one planet that all humans share.
