Meshir (Coptic: Ⲙⲉϣⲓⲣ[pronunciation?]), also known as Amshir, is the sixth month of the Coptic calendar. It lies between February 8 and March 9 of the Gregorian calendar. The month of Meshir is also the second month of the Season of 'Proyet' (Growth and Emergence) in ancient Egypt, where the Nile floods recede and the crops start to grow throughout the land of Egypt.

The name of the month of Meshir comes from Mechir, the Ancient Egyptian God genius of wind.
