In Arabic

Only used this way [e-mu-nah] as a nickname.

أَمُون [e-mu:n] The masculine doer of the verb.  It is not in use. 

  1. أُمون – [u.mu:n] (u as in -oo) This is the masculine form of the Hebrew noun above. In Arabic, it means a good and safe saddle or horse that does not stumble or grow weary. 

All these nouns come from a single verb root: أَمِنَ [amina] and its variation. 

Verb1: [amina] means to feel safe and secure about oneself, a possession or someone else.

Verb 2: [am.mana] to do something to make sure the doer, his belonging or someone else in his custody safe. To ensure (insurance).

Verb 3: [‘a:mana] to believe, to have faith. From this noun, the word: Amen could have come. It is to say that we, as a group, agree in faith. Instead of saying: [a:manna] or [nu:min], it might have been easier to come up with the word [a:mi:in], then anglicized as Amen. 

We can see the thin contextual link between the three variations clear here.
