Origin:Arabic
Meaning:Of Ahmed; Highly praised
Amed, a respelling of Ahmed, is like a standing ovation for your little superstar! This masculine pick means "highly praised" in Arabic, and is loosely tied to Muhammad, as in the prophet and founder of Islam. While the most notable bearer is Ahmed I, Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, baby will have their pick of role models. Perhaps they'll help lead their team to glory like Nigerian soccer player Ahmed Musa. Or, if you're a Star Wars fan, baby can worship American actor Ahmed Best, who brought to life Jar Jar Binks. Wherever your Amed's talents lie, applause will be their constant companion.
