Amaris is a modern Latin American elaboration of the Spanish name Amara, a feminine form of Amaro. Amaro comes from the Latin word amarus, meaning "bitter". Amaris coincides with the Latin word amaris, which means "you are loved". It could perhaps also be considered a contraction of Amarilis or a short form of Amarysia.
