Amir

prince; treetop
ORIGIN: Hebrew
POPULARITY: 308
An accent mark makes all the difference in the meaning of Amir. Put an accent over the “I” and it translates to “prince”; put a mark over the “a” and it means “prosperous.” The name is popular in the US among people of Middle Eastern descent as well as Arabs and Muslims in non-English-speaking countries. The name first found itself on the name charts in 1976, shortly after repeal of a law that limited non-European immigration to the US. Besides being a fast-climbing name, Amir is also an offshoot of a title (emir) given to high-ranking Muslim officials.
