Meaning:the end; mother city; heavenly valley
Amaya is a feminine name of primarily Spanish and Japanese origin. Though certainly a variation of Amaia, meaning "the end," the name is perhaps most widely recognized in Spain as a place of great significance. Derived from an ancient mountainous village, Amaya has come to mean "mother city." Alongside its Japanese translation as "heavenly valley," the name holds a great sense of rootedness and comfort. Truly a beautiful reminder for baby that no matter where they go, home is never too far away.
