Etymology of the name USAMA.
Meaning of the baby name USAMA.

  

USAMA (أسامة).  A variant of Arabic Osama (q.v.), possibly meaning "lion-like."  Also spelled Usamah.

    In Ramadhan, an incursion by one hundred and thirty men was successfully planned and carried out against the Bani Uwal at Mayfaak, on the confines of Najd.  The settlement was surprised; many put to death; and the camels and flocks of the tribe driven off.  In this expedition, Usama, son of Zeid, killed a man who shouted aloud the Moselm creed.  Mahomet on his return, chided him, saying:  "What! didst thou split open his heart, to see whether he told the truth or not?"  Usama said he would do so no more. (The Life of Mahomet and History of Islam to the Era of the Hegira, Muir, v.4, 1861)
