[EDITED ENTRY]

Naama: (nt.) [Vedic naaman, Lat. nomen; Goth. namo; Ags. noma, Ohg. namo] name. - 1. Literal. nom. naama.m S I.39. - naama.m karoti to give a name. - naama.m ga.nhaati to call by name, to enumerate. Definitions at Vin IV.6 (two kinds Q hiina- and ukkat.tha-) and at Vism 528 (=namanalakkha.na). - 2. Specified. naama as metaphysical term is opposed to ruupa, and comprises the 4 immaterial factors of an individual (aruupino khandhaa, viz. vedanaa sa~n~naa sankhaara vi~n~naa.na. These as the noëtic principle combd with the material principle make up the individual as it is distinguished by "name and body" from other individuals. Thus naamaruupa= individuality, individual being. Naama+ruupa form an elementary pair D III.212. Also in the Pa.ticca-samuppaada (q. v.), where it is said to be caused (conditioned) by vi~n~naa.na and to cause Sa.laayatana (the 6 senses), D II.34; Vin I.1 sq.; S II.6 sq.. Synonymous with naamaruupa is naamakaaya: Sn 1074.- 3. Use of Cases. Instr. naamena by name. - acc. naama by name S I.33, 235 (Anoma-) (ko naam' esa "who by name is this one"=what is his name). - 4. naama (acc.) as adv. is used as emphatic particle=just, indeed, for sure, certainly. Therefore freq. in exclamation and exhortation ("please," certainly); in combn with interr. pron.=now, then; with neg.=not at all, certainly not. - Often further emphasised or emphasising other part.; e. g. pi (=api) naama really, just so; app' (=api) eva n. thus indeed, forsooth (mo: What in the name of...!); eva naama in truth; naama taava certainly, etc.
