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

  

ZAMIR.  Albanian name meaning "good voice," from za "voice," and mir "good." (Universal Geography, Malte-Brun, v.4, 1829; Proceedings of the Literary & Philosophical Society of Liverpool, 1875).  Feminine Zamira.

ZAMIR (ضمیر).  Arabic.  From the vocabulary word zāmir, meaning "a singer." (An English and Arabic Dictionary, Catafago, 1858).  This was the poetical name of Sayyad Ahmad, the brother of Sayyad Imtiyaz Khan Huma. (An Oriental Biographical Dictionary, Beale-Keene, 1894)

ZAMIR (זָמִיר).  Hebrew name, meaning "pruning," also "singing," or "song."

    the time of the singing of birds is come]  The words of birds, as is indicated by the italics in the A.V., are not in the Hebrew.  All it says is that 'ēth hazzāmīr has come.  Now zāmīr may mean either "pruning" or "singing," and most of the ancient versions, e.g. LXX, Vulg., Targ., have translated it pruning, though the word does not occur elsewhere in the O.T. with this meaning  But in favour of this translation we have the fact that the various agricultural operations of the year are in Heb. named by words of an exactly similar form, e.g. qātsīr, the harvest of grain, &c... For the meaning singing, there is the fact that zāmīr occurs a number of times with the meaning song (e.g. Is. xxv. 5; 2 Sam. xxiii. 1, &c), but always of human singing.  There is no instance of its being used of the singing of birds. (Song of Solomon, A. Harper, 1902)
