Amir (pronounced Aah-mhir or A-meer) may have originated from the Hindi (rather Persian) word Ameer, meaning 'wealthy'.

1. Amir is a reminder of "amir al-mo'menin" which means "belivers' leader" and was a general name for all Mouslems' leaders. Shi'es like it more than Sunnis and refer by it to "Amir al-mo'menin Imam Ali" (peace be upon him), the first Imam for Shi'es and the fourth khalifa for Sunnis.
2. Adding another name after Amir is quite common, e. g. Amir Ali, Amir Hossein, Amir Hassan, Amir Reza, Amir Mohammad, Amir Mahmud, and Amir Abbas (the last prime minister of the ex-Shah of Iran).

In Persian the meaning of the name Amir is A part that have negative effects (A gives the word negative meaning) and MIR part means die, dead, dying.
That makes the name mean undying, immortal.
