Meaning & History

Most likely derived from the Arabic root ع م م‎ (' m m) related to concepts such as kinship and large extended groups or tribes. Alternatively it may come from the name of the ancient kingdom of Ammon, which existed between the 10th and 4th centuries BCE in land east of the Jordan River. This is the name of the capital city of the country of Jordan as well as a governorate of the same name.
