>Samara is a female given name, Hebrew in origin

I'm going to suggest that this might should be "Semitic in origin," but only because I know a Muslim woman named Samara. (?)

The maple samara, in particular, is also known here in Canada as a "key", which to me suggests a house key, but that is a once-removed association.
