Amos

Amos comes from Hebrew meaning “carried (by God)” which comes from a Hebrew verb meaning “to carry, load; burden”. It’s also a surname which could be derived from the given name, but it also has another origin as an English surname derived from Old French Amis, originally a nickname meaning “friend” which comes from Latin amicus (friend), a derivative of amare (to love) which could be derived from a PIE root word.

Amos is also the name of an ancient city in Turkey. From what I could find, the name comes from Greek ámmos meaning “sand”, likely referring to the soil around the area.

Origin: Hebrew, Proto-Indo-European, Greek
