Ami is a girl's name of Latin and Sanskrit origin. In Sanskrit, Ami translates to “disturb” or “remove,” helping baby remember to focus on what truly matters most. Derived from Amias, Amyas, and Amy, this name means "beloved," “friend,” and “lover” in Latin. With these meanings, there’s no doubt baby will be swaddled in adoration from day one. They'll be able to keep your love with them no matter where they might be, but having a name that will serve as a reminder of how they’re cherished certainly wouldn’t hurt. It’s also possibly linked to Hebrew with multiple meanings, like “trustworthy” and “my nation.”
