What does Amahi mean?
Amahi does not mean anything today.However, we did check out other uses ... There is a remote village in Northern India called Amahi. Not much else is known about it. Also, there was an ancient tale where an emperor's son was offered two women in marriage, a beautiful woman, named Amahi, and her sister. He chose the beautiful one, Amahi. The person offering then said he should have kept both! The not-so-beautiful sister was to be a longer-living woman while the beautiful one was to be short lived. As the ancient analogy goes, ... the beautiful sister was just like flowers on trees, beautiful, with a short life. The other sister, like branches on a tree, though not so beautiful, was practical and long-lived. There is also a theory that Amahi could have meant sweet (甘い, — "amai" phonetically) in ancient Japanese.
