Amoroso Italian

Wedgwood lists this name as a synonym for Flauto Amabile, Flauto Amoroso and Flauto d'Amore. Other sources describe those stops separately. Locher also lists it, saying only �see Flûte d'Amour�, but in his entry for the latter, he mentions Amorosa, but not Amoroso. Wedgwood claims the name to be Latin, but it is in fact Italian, meaning �amorous�.
