I think that could be true. Look at Amaltheia here: It lists amalos as meaning tender. This article: (and many others) list the meaning of amalos as soft.

Amalia is a common name in Greece, but I can't find when it came into use. I searched for the etymology of Αμαλία in Greek and found pages that list the Germanic origin. I can't find direct evidence linking Amalia to amalos.

This love was a bell that rang
unheard in the air.
