Amani: Meaning behind the name

The truth was that 'Amani' adalah nama yg dipilih oleh my wife.. First time my wife suggest nama tu I was like "Huh? Are u serious? Ada makna ke?"... sebabnya I hanya tahu lagu 'Amani' by my favourite Hong Kong band, 'Beyond'... Amani means 'Peace' in Swahili... takkanlah Mummy nak letak nama ikut bahasa Tanzania kot? hehehe... So my wife explain-lah 'Amani' bermaksud cita-cita/ ketenanganku/ keinginan/ kesejahteraanku... I setuju sebab ada double meaning in Arab & Swahili, both pun good meaning, just nice... disebabkan semua anak kitorang dapat 2 nama so terkial2 jugalah mencari 'pasangan' nama yg sepadan... akhirnya we decide to give her Shadrina yg bermaksud hati... Amani Shadrina = Cita-cita hati or Keinginan hati :) Below is the 'Amani' song from Beyond (u'll love it, trust me)
