I see a book by Alexandre Dumas named "Amaury" in Spanish?

What is the English equivalent? Or is it simply the same (I'd never heard of it, if so).

It is available here: http://www.booksshouldbefree.com/book/Amaury-by-Alexandre-Dumas

As some answers have said, it's just a male name. Amaury is a novel by Dumas, published in 1843. You can see it listed in the French or Spanish versions of the Wikipedia article on Dumas. It doesn't appear in the English version, though. –  MikMik Mar 12 at 13:03

It is a French first name from old Gothic origin (Amalric). It has many variations including Aymeric (French), Amalrich (German), Imre (Hungarian), Emery and Emerson (English), Américo/Emérico (Spanish) and Amerigho/Amerigo (Italian) from which the Americas take their name (Americo Vespucci).

Amaury is just a person's name. According to a quick search on google its origin is German and French.

Acording to Babynamesworld

Combination of the german 'amal' meaning "work, bravery" plus 'rik' meaning "power, ruler." Brought to England by the Normans. This is a given name which evolved into a surname and in modern times, appears as both. This is the French form.

Amaury may also be from 'helm' meaning "helmet" and 'rik' meaning "ruler."

The english equivalent is the same Amaury

The title of this book in English is also Amaury.

Here you can find two reviews of the book in English.

From the first review, I can tell Amaury de Leoville is the main character in this book.

In the second review, you can find a list of English translations:

  • "Amaury," New York, Harper, 1845, pp. 106. Tr. By E.P.

  • "Amaury," London, Methuen, 1904, sewed, pp. 132. Another edition, with coloured plates by Gordon Browne. 1904. Reprinted, same firm, 18mo., 1921, pp. 317. In the reprint the introduction is wrongly ascribed to "R.S.G.".

  • "Amaury," London, Collins Bros., pp. 319, 1930.
