Need some quick advice re girls names choices are-:

Ameyah/ Amia/ Amiah
Is this Arabic and which is the best spelling

Amara

Amara is first choice but have seen on a couple of web sites that it means " bitter" if so will have to drop it.
Jk

Huh it seems you like uncommon names. Is it that you dont want your child to have familiar name? Otherwise I will advise you go for names with clear meaning.

I am not sure if 'Amiah' you mentioned is read with ainun as in 'عامية' which is used to qualify a slang or vulgar language. I will advise you dont pick a name that is ambiguous, having an indecent variant.

Why not Aminah (آمنة), Ameerah (أميرة)?

Salam,

Ok using Hans-Wehr - classical Arabic dictionary what I could work out is

Amara(h)  - Alif Meem Alif Ra Tah_Marbutah means sign, token, indication, symptom, mark, characteristic

and 'Amara(h) - Ayn Meem Alif Ra Tah_Marbutah means live long

now if you add the chadda on the meem... like AM-MARAH (double M sound) I'm not sure...

I do see AM-MAR (alif meem_with_chadda alif ra) (the boy form without ta_marbutah) means constantly inciting, urging.

I can't find anything on amaya, not sure how it's spelled or what it's supposed to be!!

I see on some websites it says it's an Urdu name that means 'shining star' so could be that one is not Arabic but Urdu.

The best thing to do really is ask an Arabic speaking person, they could tell you what it means colloquially usually or better yet ask an Arabic-speaking Imam.

and Allahu alam.
