It is unknown quite what the name "Ammon" means. It derives of the assumed root עמם. There are two separate roots of the form עמם ('mm) in the Bible, which don't seem to have anything to do with each other.
The assumed root עמם ('mm) is never used in the Bible, so it is unknown what it might have meant. But cognate verbs mean to be comprehensive or include, and it yields some derivatives that have the meaning of togetherness. But the root also yields the following, less abstract words:
The masculine noun עם ('am) means "a people" in ways ranging from virtually all mankind to a specific nation to the population of a town. It sometimes occurs to differentiate between common folks and their leader, or to indicate people in general or simply general public, such as where the prophet speaks of the Gate of the People. It could also mean "[paternal] kinsman." The word עם ('am) postfixed with the letter yod forms the compound עמי (ami) meaning either my people (kinsman), or people (kinsman) of.
The second root has nothing to do with the first. The verb עמם ('amam) means to darken or dim, and figuratively to make secret.
Thomas means "twin".
Miner1313 is a fan of Minecraft, and the four digits were added as a result of somebody already having the usernames "Miner," "Miner1," "Miner13," and "Miner131".
