A very cool and uncommon name! It is pronounced uh-MY-us.

In Agatha Christie's "Five Little Pigs" (a Hercule Poirot mystery), the victim's name is Amyas Crale. The television show "Poirot" used the story (and character names) for one episode.

Relating to the male name Amos - as the spelling of Amias is comparable - I would pronounce Amias "AY-mee-us".

Some authorities have explained this and Amyas as contractions of Amadeus; others hold it to be a Latinization of Esme.

This spelling seems more familiar to me because it's quite similar to Elias, which may be a good thing with such a rare name. Both Amias and Amyas are still unusual and a bit old fashioned, though not in a bad way at all. They also have a nice sound as long as the first A doesn't rhyme with day since that sounds a bit forced.

Amyas (Am-ee-us) is my favourite boy name I first heard in a TV adaptation of Hercule Poirots 'Five little pigs' yep, It's pronounced Am-ee-us. Not Am-eye-us! I've researched this...! Means beloved. Related words are Amour, Amiable. And the other great name, Amadeus.
