This is a dashing alternative to the common Matthew.

Sadly, this name sounds like the word mafia.

Very popular in Germany, pronounced mah-TEE-us. [noted -ed]

This is the name of the character in The Scorpion King played by the Rock.
-- Celticdemon  11/15/2006
Actually it's not like 'mafia' at all. It's muh-THY-as, not MAH-thee-as.

Matthias Jabs is the lead-guitarist of the band Scorpions.

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

Matthias is the main character in the German film 'das wunder von bern' about life in Germany after the first world war.

Very common in Sweden in the late 80's. Too common.

Greek origin/gift of God.

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.

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.
-- TheDreadedSockMonkey  12/29/2009
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.

This name is also used frequently in The Netherlands. [noted -ed]

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.

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.

Matthias (1557-1619) was the son of Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian II and his wife Maria of Spain. He later became Emperor himself.

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.
-- threevelvetbullets  9/28/2012
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.
-- Anonymous User  1/2/2016
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".

This name is not a Modern Greek name.
-- heyyyyyyyyyyyy  1/14/2017
I really don't understand why someone would hate the name.
