Uma is another name for Parvati, a Hindu goddess of fertility, love, devotion, and power. The name means “flax; linseed” as well as “light; splendor; fame; tranquility; night”. It’s also possible that Uma comes from an expression, u mā “oh, don’t”, because Parvati wanted to practice self-denial in order to gain Shiva‘s attention and her mother tried to dissuade her from it.
Uma 馬 is also a Japanese word meaning “horse”. It also seems to be a diminutive of Umihana, a Bosnian female name meaning “mother of Hani”, Hani being an Arabic male name meaning “happy”.
