Origin of the name AMATNIM.
Etymology of the name AMATNIM.
Meaning of the baby name AMATNIM.


AMATNIM.  An early Babylonian king, the predecessor of Sargina or Sargon II.  Nothing else is known respecting him. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).

    No. 124. NUM.  The head probably of a wolf.  The cuneiform num, nim, means "wolf," but is also used for "high," "heaven" (Samoyed num, heaven), and for num, to engrave. (The Hittites and Their Language, by Conder, 1898).

... Further light might be thrown on the subject of the antiquity of 'amm as a relationship term if it could be determined whether 'amm in Maltese belonged to the early Semitic stratum of the language, or whether it is due to more recent Arabic influence.  Again, although 'amm does not occur in Amharic, amat means father-in-law and mother-in-law.  The derivation of this term is also important, it is possible that it may be derived from the Assyrian root emu.  If, however, it was borrowed from Arabic, it must have been introduced at a time when the marriage with the paternal uncle's daughter had become customary and the word had already acquired the secondary meaning of father-in-law that it now possesses in Arabia. (Phonetic Transcriptions of Indian Languages, Smithsonian, v.66, #6, 1916).
