I always thought that this name was pronounced "AM-A-DAY-US" instead of "AM-A-DEE-US".

This is a fantastic name with a fantastic meaning. I'd love to see Amadeus come back into usage.

Ahm-ah-DEE-us is also the Swedish pronunciation of Amadeus. And by the way, I love this name!

If I ever have a son I might name him Amadeus, it's a beautiful name.

Amadeus is a great name, but I think it sounds so formal and would be hard to grow up with. However, I love the meaning and I think it makes a great middle name.

Lake Amadeus is the name of a large salt lake in the southern part of the southern part of the Northern Territory in Australia.

Very pompous and pretentious. The funny thing is that Mozart was quite a huge fan of fart humor. Yet, the name sounds overly sophisticated, even snobby and elitist. I'm afraid the Falco track Rock Me Amadeus has rather ruined this name for me.

Amadeus is the name of a 1979 stage play by Peter Shaffer, loosely based on the lives of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri.

Amadeus is a really cool name but I don't know if it will ever have a comeback. Also it makes me think of the song Rock Me Amadeus.

The name Amadeus is something of a guilty pleasure to me. Yes, it's unbelievably long and sounds overly-formal, but it just sounds and looks so beautiful. I can imagine someone called Amadeus being an interesting and cool person. :)

I am currently head over heels for this name! It's so perfect. Except what could possibly be a nickname for it? I'm pregnant right now and if there was a suitable nickname I will totally use this name!

It does NOT mean "love of god". The meaning of Amadeus is "Love god!".

The name Amadeus was given to 51 baby boys born in the US in 2012. It sounds a bit pretentious as a first name to me.

I have heard this on a girl with the pet name "Ama". Not sure for a nickname for a boy, but I always think that if you feel a name needs a nickname, then you probably don't like it that much in the first place.

This is a really beautiful and sophisticated name! Mozart is a great namesake, and 'Ama' would make such a sweet nickname because it means 'love'.
