Origin:Arabic
Meaning:Princess, commander, leader
With Arabic origins, Amirah is a girl's name with the cute meaning of “princess.” A variation of the boy’s name, Amir, Amirah also means "commander" and "leader" and is widespread across the Muslim and Arabic world. However, it only first appeared in the American female baby name charts in 2006. Since then, it has remained in the lower half of the charts never really gaining popularity. But who wants to go with the norm anyway? If you’re looking to pay homage to your Arabic roots or a family member called Amir, Amirah is the way to go!
