Amy (f) French aimée, ‘loved.’ Little used in modern
Scotland, but frequently found in former times, e.g., in
various clan histories.

The name was also used as a pet
form of Amabel. Sir Walter Scott made the beautiful
Amy Robsart the heroine of his Kenilworth (1821). Amy
has in the past been one of the most popular names in the U.S .A. in the late 1970’s, partly because of the publicity given to it by President Carter’s daughter.
