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.

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