Amiri is a gender-neutral name with Arabic and Japanese origins. Meaning “prince” or “leader” in Arabic, the name Amiri can remind baby of how important they really are. While in Japanese, this name is spelled in several ways using kanji characters. Its most common meaning is broken down to “second to Asia,” combined with either “beautiful white jasmine” or “reason” and “logic.” Many will also recognize this wise name from the New Zealand film Amiri & Aroha, which is a modern interpretation of Romeo and Juliet. Luckily for us though, we know baby won’t play out such a tragic story as that; baby will be too busy climbing up to the canopy to see what beauty the world has to offer.
