First name origins & meanings:

  1. Latin: Loves
  2. French: Friend

Last name origins & meanings:

  1. English: from the Old French and Middle English personal name Amys, Amice, which is either directly from Latin amicus ‘friend’, used as a personal name, or via a Late Latin derivative of this, Amicius.
  2. German: of uncertain origin. Perhaps a nickname for an active person, from a Germanic word related to Old High German amazzig ‘busy’. Compare modern German Ameise ‘ant’.
