Origin:Variation of Amariah, Hebrew
Meaning:"said of God"
Description:Amaris as a boy's name is a variation of Amariah, a rare Biblical name for several minor figures. While both Amaris and Amariah are used for both girls and boys, Amaris is a significantly more gender neutral name. The gender balance runs about 6 girls for every boy Amaris but 20 girls for each boy named Amariah, perhaps because of its resemblance to the popular girls' name Mariah.
Origin:Variation of Amara or Amariah
Description:Amaris sounds like "amorous," which is a loving name for a child, but doesn't really have a clear derivation or meaning of its own. The popular Amara is one of the most international names on the charts, with derivations and meanings in cultures that truly span the globe. And Amariah is an ancient Hebrew name. Still, Amaris is unusual and pretty, and that may be enough.
