Ameer is a boy's name of Arabic origin, meaning "prince," "ruler," or "chieftain." The name's variation, Amir, was initially given to high-ranking officials such as rulers or army commanders in Islamic countries. The title was later given to a ruler's son, which is where its regal etymology originated. Although Amir is popular in Arabic-speaking countries, Ameer is the perfect choice for parents looking for a unique variant of the melodic masculine name.
