Etymology

Attestations with the meaning “power, consciousness” support a connection with Sanskrit अम (áma-, strength), Avestan 𐬇𐬨𐬀(ə̄ma, attacking power, strength, potence); From Proto-Indo-European *h₃emh₃- (take hold of; be strong). This root has been connected with Ancient Greek ὄμνυμι (ómnumi, swear), Sanskrit अमन्ति (amánti, take hold of, swear), and most likely Latin amō (love).

Must be separated from ãmalioti (talk nonsense), of onomatopoeic origin. See am̃sėti (yap, yelp).
