Spelled either Amias or Amyas, this unusual Latin name comes from the word for love. The Amyas version became known via the hero of the once popular 1855 Charles Kingsley novel, Westward Ho!--Captain Sir Amyas Leigh. Unlike other ias-ending names such as Tobias and Zacharias, Amias is not a biblical name.
