Origin of the name AMALIE.
Etymology of the name AMALIE.
Meaning of the baby name AMALIE.


AMALIE.  German form of Lombardic Amala (q.v.), meaning "work."

    In Germany there have been many notable women of the name, including Amalie of Mansfield (1493), Amalie of Wurtemburg (1550), and Amalie of Saxe-Weimar, Goethe's friend.  The last named was born in Italy in 1739, and died of a broken heart in 1807, for she never recovered from the anguish she suffered at Germany's humiliation at the hands of Napoleon Buonaparte at the battle of Jena in 1806.  A Guelph by descent, she, at the age of seventeen, married the Duke of Saxe-Weimar, and at the age of nineteen was left a widow.  During her son's minority she held the reins of government, and her little Court at Weimar was, during her reign, the centre of German literary activity.  Goethe settled in the town, and amongst those who were to be met in the Duchess' circle were Wieland, Herder, Musæus, and Schiller. (Girls' Christian Names, Swan, 1905)
