Amar's a masculine Indian name, Sanskrit for "immortal", but it could easily be feminised into Amara if one chooses.
Amara can come from Latin amarus "bitter".
More out there, but still conceivable is that Amara could be a short, altered form of Amardad, a feminine Persian name. Amardad's the modern form of Ameretat, meaning "immortality" in Avestan. Ameretat was the name of a Persian goddess of plants and long life (hence, presumably, her name's meaning), and Ameretat is also the name of a month in the Iranian calendar.
I don't know about any German, Arabic, or Spanish meanings, sorry. Are you quite sure you're checking reliable, non-"baby name" sites/books?
