Gender: F Meaning of Amity: "friendship" Origin of Amity: Latin

Amity--what nicer gift to give your little girl than a name that signifies friendship and harmony? This virtue name is also more rhythmic and feminine than the single-syllable Hope, Faith, and Grace.

Amity is a neglected gem that could make a distinctive namesake for an Aunt Amy.
