Amalia means "God's work" in Hebrew. It can also be used as a vernacular name for Malka.

Also an ancient Greek name, from the word "amalos", means soft.

I suspect that the meaning of this name is derived from a Semitic language such as Hebrew or Arabic. The Arabic word for "work" is "amal" (ayin, mim, lam).

The word "amal" is a Hebrew word, meaning - labor. Therefor, "Amalia" means "God's labor" in Hebrew; And therefor, obviously, it is also a Hebrew name.

Amal means work in Hebrew and Arabic.

Doesn't Amal also mean - hope, expectation, aspiration - in arabic? It sounds beautiful for me.

My nana's name, I love her so much! It means "hard worker" She is a hard worker!

Also my friend from Norway's name, She spells it Amalie, but some people pronounce it "om-ah-lay" like that girl from the movie Ameile.
