Amma

[ahm-mah]

A spelling variation of Ama, a Western African name meaning "Saturday's child." But even if your little Amma isn't born on a Saturday, it'll probably be her favorite day of the week at some point (who doesn't love a Saturday?!), so it's still fitting.

Nicknames:

Am, Ami.

Fun fact:
