Meaning & History

From Arabic عمان‎ (ʿUmān), which is of disputed etymology. It may be from Arabic عُمَانَة (ʿumāna), a byname for the historical city of Sohar (presently located in Al Batinah North Governorate, Oman), which is probably derived from the root ع م ن‎ (ʿ-m-n) meaning "to settle, to remain, to dwell". Alternately, it may be derived from the name of a historical figure or from the name of a valley in Yemen. This is the name of a country located in the southeastern Arabian Peninsula in Western Asia.
