Actually it is a surname that was used by Jews of Russia, the site and some information is below.

Also a family named Amitron lived in Manhattan, NY in 1900. The head of that household was named Joseph Amitron from Romania, his wife Gisel or Gesel (hard to read), and children Abraham and David. The neighbors were all likely Jews, with the names, Rheinhard, Weinberg, Amster, Friedman, Mashberg, Kinsberg, and Goldstein from the countries of Austria, Russia, England, Romania and Africa.

I also found the surname Amitron on a Holocaust list, and a man named Ehud Amitron, l believe lives in Israel.
