Help still needed - brother for Amias

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] berries,

I posted here a few months ago to try to find a sibling name for my ds [name_m]Amias[/name_m]. My second boy is now here and a week old and we still have no name, having scoured all naming sites, I thought I would try posting one last time in case someone can help.

The problem is we love the name [name_m]Amias[/name_m] too much and nothing comes close :-(. I love [name_m]Amias[/name_m] because it is soft yet strong, has a romantic feel, very unusual (never come across another) and it has a beautiful meaning. While I would love to tick all these boxes again, I accept it may not be possible, but the feeling the name invokes is important to me.

At the moment the front runner is [name_m]Myles[/name_m], I like it but I don’t love it, it’s not unusual, no special meaning, but I like the feel. I think despair is helping it grow on me :-).

Other names I like (not love) but either can’t use, too popular or have been vetoed are:


Any ideas? Thoughts? Comments? Hit me with em!!!

Thanks all x

Congratulations on the arrival of your little boy! On your list, my favourites are [name_u]Micah[/name_u] and [name_u]Beau[/name_u]. Other suggestions…


On your list I like [name_m]Koa[/name_m] best :slight_smile:

You can have my boys name- [name_m]Ezra[/name_m]. I think it sounds nice with amias. Congrats on your baby boy!


Those are my favorites from your list.

My first thought was [name_m]Esai[/name_m]/[name_m]Esau[/name_m].




The first name that came to mind upon seeing [name_m]Amias[/name_m] was [name_m]Armand[/name_m]/[name_m]Armando[/name_m]! [name_m]Armando[/name_m] in particular has that strong yet soft, romantic feel, isn’t extremely common (but not unheard of) and the shared initials of the names tie them together nicely! [name_m]Amadeo[/name_m]/[name_m]Amedeo[/name_m] also came to mind, but may be too close to [name_m]Amias[/name_m]. Congratulations on your little boy!

Congratulations on the birth of your son. Naming a second baby sure is hard, we certainly thought so.

I suggest:

I feel like [name_m]Raphael[/name_m] or [name_m]Rafael[/name_m] is the perfect fit for you. It has a romantic feel, great meaning, goes well with [name_m]Amias[/name_m], and I work with 20+ different children every day and I’ve heard it once maybe. I really would consider it.

Thank you so much for your responses!

I now have a few more options to discuss with my oh, particularly [name_m]Esai[/name_m]/[name_m]Esau[/name_m] and [name_m]Cassiel[/name_m].

Any other ideas?

So appreciated :slight_smile:

I just wanted to ask how you pronounce [name_m]Amias[/name_m]?

I’ve heard it like “[name_f]AMMY[/name_f]-us” and “Uh-MY-us”.

I think [name_m]Caspar[/name_m], [name_m]Raphael[/name_m], [name_m]Solomon[/name_m], and [name_m]Azriel[/name_m] would be cool!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] [name_f]Rose[/name_f],

The second pronounciation, Uh-MY-us.
