Etymology & Historical Origin of the Baby Name Omari

Omari is a slight elaboration of Omar. The name Omar s briefly mentioned in the Bible (Genesis 36:11) as one of the progeny of Esau (Esau being the twin brother of Jacob, the son of Isaac, and the grandson of Abraham). In Hebrew, the name translates to “he that speaks, talkative”. Omar is also of Arabic origin (and often rendered as Umar) meaning “flourishing, long-lived”. In the history of English-speaking countries, the name Omar was taken up by the Puritans and mainly popularized in America. Puritans typically selected lesser-known Biblical names to use for their children. More often, however, the name’s usage is tied to people of Arabic origin. Omari is another take on this name and appears to be mainly used in the United States.
