What does the word Amein really mean?

Millions of people around the world say "Amein" and many of them have no idea what it means. In general only understand it as "so be it"  "May it be so" sure; certain, , abstractly faithfulness; adverbially truly: - Amen, so be it, truth. The purpose of Amen is for the giving blessing, give the Almighty the glory, praise, wisdom, worship, thanksgiving, honour, His power , His might, obtain unmerited favour via Mashiach, making a commitment to do something such like doing the Mitzvot, or keeping the Torah and also for confirming, confirmation of Oath, affirmative as in Yemeyahu 11:5, 28:6, an agreement with..

Amein is the root word for Hebrew word Faith, Emunah, and Emunim came from the word Emunim mean putting in practice, so when we say Amein meaning I have faith and believe what he said and will put into practice or act upon it . Amein is also refer to people - ie the Faithful ones". Faith without action, works, deeds or act upon it or do something about it is dead,or claiming to have faith but without substance, that empty promise, are all not true faith. Beware not use the "Amen" carelessly or loosely or as traditional habit.
