I was adopted and given this name. My Adoptive mother's father is named Amzy. He is a German who's family is Amish and came to America in the 1700's to escape persecution or something of that sort in Germany(I believe from Eastern Germany). They now reside in an Indiana village, though my Grandfather has left. Before he got cancer and became sick, he told me that Amzy is the masculine of Amze. Apparently, the two names are pronounced the same, but the spelling is what shows its gender. Since my Grandfather is too sick to find anything about it, he sent me to go out and discover the origins of our shared name. Please, I hope that you people can help me.
