Two problems:

1) `git am` is a legitimate extsting Git command which applies
   a patch series from a file (mbox-style) so I'd use some other
   mnemonic even though this one appears to be compelling.

2) You're over-complicating the solution by deferring to the shell
   while you don't have to: with "simple" aliases, all the arguments
   are appended to the expanded alias as you would expect it,

     % git config --local --add alias.xx 'commit -a -m'
     % git xx 'hey!'
     [master (root-commit) 1a73bc8] hey!
     1 file changed, 0 insertions(+), 0 deletions(-)
     create mode 100644 foo

   That is, when called, my "xx" alias is expanded to

     "git" + alias text + any user-supplied arguments


     git commit -a -m 'Hey!'
