Derived from Middle Persian amir-e Hind meaning "Emir of India". The first word in that sentence is the Arabic military title Emir (Amīr in Arabic), which is ultimately derived from Arabic أمير (amīr) meaning "commander, ruler, prince". The second word e is a so-called izāfa and means "of". The third word is derived from Middle Persian Hind meaning "India", itself ultimately derived from Old Persian Hindūš "India".
