English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Central Atlas Tamazight ⴰⵎⴰⵣⵉⵖ ‎(amaziɣ). From the active participle ⴰⵎ ‎(am) and ⴰⵣⵉⵖ ‎(aziɣ), whose meaning is unknown but is possibly related to "aze" to be strong in Taznatit, or perhaps "jeɣeɣ" to be brave in Tamasheq, z and j frequently swap out in Tamaziɣt.
