    How do you say Matthias?

    I've seen all these pronunciations on various sites onlines. How do YOU say it?

    Also, do you know of any other recognized/preferred spellings?

    Re: How do you say Matthias?

    I love Matthias. It's a great alternative to the popular Matthew. It's pronounced "muh-thy-is" from the Bible but I believe the German pronunciation is "mah-TEE-ahs". I prefer the original Hebrew version. There is also a Welsh surname spelled Mathias.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    this is a very old poll, but I'd still like more opinions. Thanks!

    I would say Ma-THY-as, but Ma-TEE-as is a pronunciation I've heard too.

    Whenever I see it here on Nameberry, I always say mah-TEE-is (us).
