Etymology & Historical Origin - Amiah
Amiah is a recently created name, perhaps an elaboration on Miah. It may have also been inspired by Amiya and Amiyah (names with the “-iya(h)” suffix have been popularized by African-Americans in recent years). Some contend that Amiah is a variant of the Spanish Amaya which in turn was developed from the Basque Amaia (pronounced “ah-MY-uh” and meaning “the end”). From this perspective, Amaia/Amiah might be a name to consider for one’s last and final child in terms of birth order (i.e., the end of the line).
Popularity of the Name Amiah
Amiah is an extremely uncommon name. So far there have only been two years (2008 and 2010) that she even managed to eke out a spot on America’s Top 1000 list. This means Amiah is given to a tiny handful of baby girls on an annual basis. Not to mention she has a lot of competition with other possible spellings: Amaya, Amiya, Amiyah and the like. It adds some confusion to the mix, as does the uncertain pronunciation (is it ah-MY-uh or, ah-MEE-uh?). These are just some questions a girl named Amiah will likely have to answer most of her life. Might be a small price to pay for such a pretty name. But that’s your decision.
