Amar, 'Ammar

Origin: Indian, Bosnian, Arabic, Egyptian

अमर (Hindi) Amar 

عمّار (Arabic) 'Ammar

Meaning: an Indian masculine name meaning "immortal" in Sanskrit.

It's also the Bosniam form of Arabic 'Ammar meaning "virtuous, pious", as well as being a surname derived from the given name.

Amar also seems to be a Hebrew surname derived from the Levantine or Egyptian form of qamar meaning "moon", as well as being used as an Egyptian given name for either gender; Egyptian Arabic is slightly different from the Modern Standard Arabic when spoken, accounting for slight differences in spoken language, such as moon being pronouced as Amar while in Standard Arabic it is Qamar.
