Amity Origin and Meaning

The name Amity is a girl's name of Latin origin meaning "friendship".

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.
