Anamim (Hebrew: עֲנָמִים‎‎ ‘Ănāmîm) is, according to the Bible, either a son of Ham's son Mizraim or the name of a people descending from him.

The name should perhaps be attached to a people in northern Africa, probably in the surrounding area of Egypt. A text from Assyria, dating from the time of Sargon II, apparently calls the Egyptians "Anami".[citation needed]
