It looks too much like mantis.
Derived from either Lithuanian 'mantus' meaning "intelligent" (see Daumantas) or from Lithuanian 'manta' meaning "property, estate" as well as "wealth, riches, fortune".

This name is also frequently encountered as a short form of masculine compound names that start with Mant- (such as Mantvydas) or end in -Mantas, such as Eimantas and Vilmantas. Such names usually contain either one of the aforementioned Lithuanian elements, but not always, as is the case with e.g. Zigmantas (which is of Germanic origin).

Known Lithuanian bearers of this name include the professional basketball player Mantas Kalnietis (b. 1986) and the singer and actor Mantas Jankavičius (b. 1980).
