Matthias, Matias, or Mattias spelling?
We're trying to name baby #4, a boy. I looked at my family tree and found a name I love; there's an ancestor on my side who was named Matias (he went by Mati, pronounced Matt-y, according to a relative). I think I like the Matthias spelling better, though, if we were to use this name. What is nameberry's collective verdict?
This is all hypothetical, since my husband probably won't be talked into it even if I lobby hard. But I kind of love it, and a girl can dream...

I like all three spellings because they are all legit in different languages.
I would pronounce Matthias/Mathias differently than Matias/Mattias.
Matthias/Mathias - "mah-THYE-as" (I think this can also be pronounced "mah-TEE-as" in German too but that's not my initial instict.)
Mattias/Matias - "mah-TEE-as"
Either way, it's a great name!
