Amity. What is there to say about this name? It is amazingly beautiful. So simple, yet elegant.

My 2 year old cousin is named Amity Rose... I think it is adorable!

I really like it, it's much more interesting than Amy. But it reminds me of "The Amityville Horror".

It's a nice name alright, but I either think of "Amity Park" hometown of "Danny Phantom" or the Amityville Horror, as well as the Amityville Toaster.

This is a very pretty name. I love the meaning of it but I too think of Amityville Horror right away with this name.

In the movie Jaws, the town that was attacked by the shark was called Amity. It is a very pretty name.

I like this name a lot. I actually know two Amitys, and we live in a town literally five minutes from Amityville. I've never thought of that really til now.

A famous bearer for Amity is this girl who appeared on Big Brother. She was hot but extremely slutty (New Zealand version).

It's kind of cute, but it sounds like "calamity," as well as being known for the Amityville Horror.

I actually don't think of Amityville Horror when I think of this name. I think of the Elliott Smith song, Amity. It's such a pretty name.

Amity is an absolutely beautiful name. My wife is pregnant and we will be using it if the baby is a girl. Its meaning is also special to us because she will be born in Texas, which also means friendship (from Tejas, a Karankawa Native American word).

I find it stupid that people associate it with The Amityville Horror. Do you automatically associate Jack with Jack Daniel's? Do you think of the bathroom every time you hear John? Of course not. Every name has something negative that can be connected with it. Let it go.

Well, Jack and John are very common names. Amity isn't. And besides, Jack Daniels and the bathroom aren't as bad as the Amityville Horror stuff, which is probably why people are being reminded of it.

As far as the name goes, I'm okay with it. I mean, I never really knew that this was actually a name, but it sounds okay. The only thing is, is that your child will have to get used to the Amityville Horror jokes and crap like that. Otherwise, go for it!

It sounds too corny and sappy for a grown-up who wants people to take her seriously.
-- slight night shiver  5/15/2008
I think Amity is kinda pretty.
-- JellyBee  5/22/2008
For some odd reason this name has always been struck as masculine to me. =/ Oh, well, it sounds lovely, anyway! ^_^
-- CanadianChibi  3/3/2009
Nah. I don't like it. If you really like this name, please choose Amita. It's a great alternative.
-- enchy  9/2/2009
I like it only as a nickname for Araminta.
-- lucyskydiamonds  11/22/2009
Pretty nice name to me. And it can be shortened to Amy if the bearer thinks it's too unusual.

"Your house frightens me, Mrs. Lutz."

Amityville Horror.
Enough said.

The protagonist of the puzzle game series "Puyo Puyo" (through Fever, Fever 2, and 15th) is named "Amitie". Not the exact spelling, but hope it counts!

The younger generation might appreciate this name more than all of you seem to. I'm sixteen, and I hadn't heard of the Amityville Horror until I looked up the comments on this name. It is likely this name will become much more popular in the next ten to twenty years.
-- Sabella Authoress  8/30/2012
I think it could be a nice alternative to Amy. (Almost) Everyone knows at least a few Amy's but how many Amity's do you know?!
-- GibsonGirl  11/7/2012
I'm 15, and trust me, the first thing I thought of when I saw this was the amityville horror. Not a very good association. I'd say avoid using this name, there are plenty of other good names out there!

My name is Amity. I was born in 1986. My parents are not horror movie fans and knew nothing of "The Amityville Horror". They found the name in a baby book, liked the friendship meaning, and also they were familiar with a church called the Amity Church. Growing up, mom would sometimes ask if I liked/didn't like it. I've always loved my name and even though people sometimes commented "Oh, like the Amityville Horror", to me it is just a way for them to know how to pronounce it correctly! So I often make a joke about the movie when I am getting to know people. Honestly, though, I believe it is time for a revival of this name! The new generation is not familiar with the movie series or the Amityville murders, so babies born with this name now won't get the Amityville reactions that I did... at least not from their peers. Adults usually have the tact not to mention it. If you look up the popularity of this name, you see a rise and then sharp dips in 1980 and 2006 after the Amityville movies were released/re-released... I just find this comical. Like someone else said, most names can have some negative connotation. But if you're on the fence about using this name for your baby girl and I haven't convinced you, how about Verity instead?
