Amir (also spelled Ameer or Emir, Arabic: امير‎, Persian: امير‎, Hebrew: אמיר‎, pronounced [aːmˈiːr]) is a masculine name with two meanings , one is Arabic/Hebraic origin derived from the three letters AMR which means 'to give orders'. The title Emir in Arabic, which is essentially the same word as Amir, therefore means: "one who gives orders". It also means summit of a tree in Hebrew; and other one in Persian is pronounced in the same way but it has a different meaning, it consists of two parts; "A" which means "Un" and "mir" which is the root of the verb "Mordan مُرَدن" ( to die ) , so Amir in Persian means the one who [his sprit and his memory] will never die.
