Amos Genealogy & History

Amos is an English name with two possible origins. First, it could be from the Normans, derived from the Old French personal name Ami(s), which means friend. That word itself was originally derived from the Latin word amicus, a derivative of amare, to love. Another possible source is the personal name Amos, from the Hebrew prophet of the same name (the word means borne by God). Amos family history is first recorded with one Robert Amis (an alternate spelling) who lived in Suffolk in 1221; early Amoses were also found in Northumberland. Amos genealogy in America begins with a Hugh Amos who came to Boston in 1666. The Amos family motto is fama candida rosa dulcior, which means fame is sweeter than the white rose.
