Das Wunder von Bern is about life in Germany after WW2. Anyhow, I agree, it’s a lovely film and a beautiful name.

My husband grew up watching the Redwall tv series as a kid and held onto Matthias as a name he'd like to give a son one day. Ironically, I read one of the Redwall books when I was a kid and loved it but forgot what it was called as I grew up. It was pretty exciting when my husband reintroduced me to the series. We had a baby boy a year ago and named him Matthias. We pronounce it mah-thie-iss. I do not think it sounds like "my-thigh" though I can see why some people might think that.

We love the name because it is strong and loyal sounding. Whenever we tell people his name they always comment on how much they like it. His two year old sister calls him "Thie-ee" which we find really cute as a nickname for a very young child.

I am much more inclined to the pronunciation of 'Muh-TEE-us'

'Muh-thie-us' just sounds really awful and stupid in my opinion. Sounds like somebody saying "My Thigh".

I personally love this name. One of the characters (a main character) in the story I'm writing is named Matthias. My character has two separate personalities, the shy, introverted, depressed side, and the outgoing seducer with lots of side chicks, so those are the only personalities I can see somebody with that name having.

Matthew is too common in America, I much prefer Matthias (which I've only ever heard it said Muh-th-eye-iss). It sounds tough:) The lead singer of Falconer is called Matthias.

I've never been able to see this name on a boy. It's always struck me as a girl's name, despite the meaning. Beautiful name, nonetheless.

This name sounds very nice pronounced correctly, but most people around where I live would try to pronounce it "Math-ee-as". I think it would sound strange on your average North American male, as it has an exotic quality to it.

It's a very unique and refined alternative to Matthew, which is exceedingly overused today. It's a great name to give to someone. It gives a very strong impression, and it's definitely a name you'd remember without it being too ostentatious.

I love this name; it's handsome and uncommon where I live, which is always a plus. The only problem is, I have a relative named Matthew, so I'm afraid it might be too similar.

Handsome, sophisticated, casual yet elegant, out of the ordinary, these are some of the words that describe this name. I simply think it's a great name.

This is actually the original form of the name. Matthew is just an English version.

Actually it's not like 'mafia' at all. It's muh-THY-as, not MAH-thee-as.
