Another person on the other thread has already explained Amira. I know little about Semitic languages to be able to add to that explanation. In Hindi, the word amir has been borrowed, but only in the sense of rich; and amira is not used.

My name is written in Bengali script. It is pronounced t-awe-n-moy, with a unaspirated soft dental t (think French). -moy is a common suffix meaning `made of' (technically, `transformation of') and tad is the demonstrative pronoun `that'. The whole indicated someone concentrating intensely. The post is long enough without going into my last name, I'll leave that for a different post.
