I have liked the name [name]Amber[/name] for a while. It is one of those names that just sounds like all the right sounds to me, however it is seen as unpopular and “unstylish” due to the fact this was very popular not too long ago, that these things go out of style and wait until they sound new again. However, I would choose it if you love it. Not that many of her classmates will share her name, to me it sounds warm and sunny, something of a carefree personality, that’s free of associations with other people who have the name, very focused on how the name sounds to me, the imagery I get. Other people will associate it with a long list of people they know with the name (another reason names go out of style is because you or someone you know is bound to know someone with the name - any popular name - whom they despise with the fire of the hot, hot sun. This reaches a critical point and the name just has nowhere to go but down). They will associate it with a certain cheapness, certain names are well chosen by… certain professionals who may be paying their own way through college, at least some of them must be.
I think in any era where some names seem out of style and some names sound very in, names still have a whole language quality of “sounding pretty” or “sounding not pretty”. A name like [name]Bertha[/name] always sounds very heavy and unattractive. A name like [name]Cheryl[/name] sounds very pretty but from a different era. I think a name like [name]Cheryl[/name] could still be chosen and nobody will hate it too much because it sounds pretty anyway. They might feel unstylish, but still have a decent euphonic name nonetheless. Someday, [name]Bertha[/name] will sound ok to some people and I will ask them what’s their dosage. I think a name like [name]Amber[/name], especially now that it’s no longer too common at all, will sound very nice and unique at least among classmates. It still sounds pretty to the ear, so it should be fine.
