Etymology of the name EMIN.
Meaning of the baby name EMIN.

  

EMIN (أمين).  Variant form of Arabic Amin (q.v.), meaning "faithful."  Usage: Armenia.

... In October the Mahdists came down upon the province, and at the beginning of December, on the news of their successes in the north, the native soldiers at Dufile besought Emin Pasha to lead them in retreat.  Emin's own unwillingness to quit the province, the affairs of which were in great confusion, added to Arthur Jephson's difficulties.  The council of native rebel officers at Wadelai condemned both Emin and Jephson to death, but early in February 1889 he succeeded in rejoining Stanley at Kavali, and subsequently they managed to rescue Emin.  Returning to England in 1890, Jephson became a queen's messenger in 1895 and held a similar post under King Edward VII (1901).... (Dictionary of National Biography, Lee, v.2, 1912)
