Amaya is the name of a 1920 opera by Spanish Basque composer Jesús Guridi. It was based on the 1879 historical novel "Amaya o los vascos en el siglo VIII" (Amaya, or the Basques in the 8th century) by Spanish Navarrese author Francisco Navarro Villoslada. The story is of a Christian woman, Amaya, who lived during the invasion of Visigothic Spain by the Moors. The name is derived from Amaia, Basque for "the end". Other Basque names from the book, like the feminine Amagoia (or Amagoya in Spanish) and the masculine Aitor were popularised in Spain because of the novel.
