Namberry.com states, “Amos has been shunned since the 1930s due to its association with racially stereotyped characters on the radio show Amos n’ Andy, but we think it’s time to move beyond that dated image and reconsider this robust biblical name.”
Micah, Elijah and Isaiah are similar options that may also appeal to those who have fallen hard for the name Amos.
