I wish I could help you out here but having never heard the name before I have no idea what the answer is. Good luck though.

Hello leemike05,
I think I can help you with that.

- ALMAS is a latin originated word that means SOULS. I'm not sure if you're familiar with this word, but SOUL is the spiritual nature of humans, the immortal part of ourselves, separable from the body at death. ALMA is a Portuguese and Spanish word and it is feminine. ALMAS is its plural.

- As a name, ALMA has its origins in ancient Rome as a title for various mother goddesses, especially Ceres or Cybele and in Christianity for the Virgin Mary. In Portuguese, ALMA as a name also means KINDNESS or CLEMENCY.

I hope that helped!
Regards. :)
