    Thoughts on Amos?

    I love vowel names and know that many of you all do to... So in our lists and suggestions, why haven't I seen Amos?

    I am not sure I like it for me with our last name, but I am just wondering why I haven't seen more of it on these boards?

    Thoughts? Is it dated? Trendy?

    Like I said, I have no attachment to this name, it just popped into my head and I am wondering why I haven't seen it anywhere on nameberry!

    Amos is a bit dated, I think. I'm 41 and think Amos & Andy when I hear it (and that program pre-dates me by a number of years, I think)!

    The other assocation I have is Famous Amos, which is a yummy association! I have Amos on my collected favorites list but I think I'm one of a very few that do like Amos. He's soft & gentle feeling, very calm too. Not exactly in step with today's names, I think. He sounds awesome with my surname! So I definitely like him and have him in a few combos on my favorites list but I doubt there are many others. I'd love to see what others think of sweet, little Amos!

    Amos is very cute but has a very similar sound to an unattractive body part. Poor little Amos would be teased nonstop.

    Titus is another name that is a real problem. Sounds like Tight You-Know-What.

    Never thought of that either, Susan. Thanks for pointing that out. Maybe for a cat?

    For a conceited little cat.

    It is important to consider such teasing factors, I didn't catch that either! It doesn't sound too similar in sound to said body part though, and I wouldn't condemn every name ending in -os/-is/-us based on that. I like Amos. He reminds me of a mossy stone (which is a good thing!). He's quite unusual, it's not often you find a short name ending in -os. Cool pick, thanks for pointing it out! :]

    I agree, Susan! The a beginning, the os ending, n being so close to m, and the two syllables, is a recipe for disaster! Amos and the, uh, other thing, are too close for comfort for me!

    Another one that sounds too much like this anotomical part, is Anais. If someone doesn't understand how to pronounce it properly in French (and oh, have I heard it butchered!), Anais is just asking for trouble!

    if you like amos, what about arlo? it doesn't rhyme with any less-than-desirable body parts that i can think of!
