"evening conversation"

Samar Origin and Meaning

The name Samar is a girl's name of Arabic origin meaning "evening conversation".

This lovely Arabic name is gaining popularity in the US, used equally for boys and girls. Indeed, its sound (it rhymes with the feminine Tamar but ends with the fashionably masculine -ar sound, as in Oscar) and most logical nickname (Sam) make it a choice that's at once accessible and unsual for both boys and girls.
