I love the name Amos, especially since J.K. Rowling used it for Cedric Diggory's father: Amos Diggory.

My friends and I use this as a pet form for our friend Amy. Mostly just to get on her nerves.

The "Amos and Andy Show" was a popular radio show in the U.S. during the 1920/30s and a television show in the 1950s. The main characters were Amos Jones and Andy Hogg Brown. Today, the show is best remembered for its offensive racial stereotyping. It starred African-American actors, but upheld 19th-century ideas about blacks and featured moronic dialogue. Protests from the NAACP contributed to its cancelation.

Unfortunately, the stereotypes portrayed in the show are still slightly attached to Amos, and it's a shame that this lovely name doesn't get the attention it deserves.

The name Amos also means "Burden or Burden-Bearer" because of the great burden of delivering his prophecy from God concerning the sins of the nation as well as their punishment for such sins.

Amos ROCKED in the bible! I love the book of Amos and if you were named Amos I think it would be a great! I love the name Amos Hayden or Amos David.

In the musical version of "Whistle Down The Wind", Swallow's old friend who saves her is called Amos.

I would fear that a boy named Amos would be called anus throughout grade school.

This makes me think of a sort of dumb, bumbling guy. Probably because I connect it with the character in the musical Chicago.

You have a mistake. Amoos is to be full of what you carry, and in Hebrew you write it just the same, but it have nothing to do with the name Amos.

Great name but not something I'd use for a child. It rhymes with Anus. Yeah, no thank you...

It's a very upperclass name, but I think it suits a grown man more than it does a child. It would sound Spanish if you pronounced it "Ah-mose", however.

It also has a classical ting to it, descended from Hebrew. It is also very majestic, kind of mysterious in a way. Considerably unique, should be more popular especially in America.

In Greek Amos or most commonly Ammos means sand and in the Roman times it meant the area surrounding the sea.
