About the name Ama

This name is found in West Africa. Among the Yoruba people, Ama means a difficult birth and among the Ewe speaking people it means born on a Saturday.

I have also seen it listed as meaning "water" as a "Native American" name. However, I can't say much more since no tribe was listed. I don't like to list Native American names without language or tribe information so it's not going in the list, but I figure it's fair to give it a footnote.
