Tamika is a Japanese female name with a variety of meanings depending on the kanji used:

  • ta  “many, much” + mi “reality; truth” + ka  “fruit” (多実果);
  • ta  “many, much” + mi  “beauty; beautiful” + ka  “beautiful, good; excellent” (多美佳);
  • tami  “people; nation” + ka  “summer” (民夏);
  • tami  “people; nation” + ka  “fruit” (民果);
  • tami  “people; nation” + ka  “song, sing” (民歌)

There are likely other meanings depending on the kanji used. Written in hiragana its たみか. Tamiko is a variant of the name though with the -ko  kanji meaning “child”.

I’ve seen some sites list Tamika as a modern American name, perhaps an elaborated form of Tamara or Tamar meaning “date palm; date fruit” which derives from a Proto-Semitic origin.

I’ve seen one example of Tamika being used as a male name, Tamika Mkandawire, an English footballer (or soccer), born in Malawi, a country in Africa. I haven’t been able to find much information behind his name, so I don’t know whether Tamika is a male name in his country.

Origin: Japanese, Proto-Semitic
