Origin and Meaning

Latin spelling of Greek Ματθιας (Matthias), a younger form of Greek Ματθαιος (Matthaios) deriving from a Hebrew name. The experts obviously don't agree with each other about the Hebrew original of the name:

Mattitja [1] [2] / Mattitjá [3] [4] / Mattitjah [5] / Mattitjāh [6]

Mattathia [7] / Mattathiah [8] / Mattathiáh [9]

Mattijá [3]

Matanja [10] / Mattanjá [3]

מַתִּתְיָהוּ (Mattityahu) [11]

mattithaih [12] (typing error?)

But they all agree about the meaning of it: 'gift of God' (see also JO) [7] [8] [9] [1] [4] [5] [6] [11] [3] [10] [13] [14] [12] [2]
