Naming her after Amber.

I have a cousin named [name_f]Amber[/name_f] and I would like to name one of my daughters after her. I already have some names picked out for my future baby girls but [name_f]Amber[/name_f] does not go well as a middle name. I was wondering what names might be similar to [name_f]Amber[/name_f] or remind you of the name [name_f]Amber[/name_f]. Any suggestions would be great!


Without knowing the names, I’m not sure what will work, but here are some thoughts:
[name_f]Ambra[/name_f] - a European variant of [name_f]Amber[/name_f]
[name_f]Amberly[/name_f] - i don’t like this AT ALL, it sounds like an adverb form of [name_f]Amber[/name_f], but some people are into it?

Names that start with Am:

Or, since [name_f]Amber[/name_f] is a beautiful stone, maybe another gem name could be a tribute: [name_u]Ruby[/name_u], [name_f]Opal[/name_f], [name_f]Esmerelda[/name_f], etc.

[name_u]Ember[/name_u] is pretty and less common.

You could use the color of amber, which I think is beautiful.


What FNs do you like? I don’t find that [name_f]Amber[/name_f] flows particularly badly. I know someone who named her daughter after her sister, [name_f]Amber[/name_f], and I always loved her full name (W@verly [name_f]Amber[/name_f] K!eu). So beachy and modern and unexpected. :slight_smile: A lot of the names I can think of–[name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] [name_f]Amber[/name_f], [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] [name_f]Amber[/name_f], [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Amber[/name_f], [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] [name_f]Amber[/name_f], [name_f]Serafina[/name_f] [name_f]Amber[/name_f], [name_f]Jocelyn[/name_f] [name_f]Amber[/name_f]–all sound fine to me. :slight_smile:

I never seem to be able to find anything that relates close enough to [name_f]Amber[/name_f] for me to feel like it’s an actual honor. [name_m]Even[/name_m] [name_u]Ember[/name_u] doesn’t seem close enough to me, but I think it’s probably your best bet.

Good luck!

I like the idea of another stone. Or the color of [name_f]Amber[/name_f] like suggested is good too.

[name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] are superb choices.

Names associated with amber resin:
[name_u]Bright[/name_u] sun ( sunshine :slight_smile:

Maybe you could ask [name_f]Amber[/name_f] for ideas?

[name_f]Saffron[/name_f] is a precious orange-gold spice compared to [name_f]Amber[/name_f] being a precious orange-gold gemstone?

Playing off the warm yellow-through-brown tones there’s also [name_f]Marigold[/name_f], [name_f]Jonquil[/name_f], [name_f]Golda[/name_f], [name_f]Tawny[/name_f], [name_f]Sienna[/name_f], [name_f]Primrose[/name_f]… and [name_f]Soleil[/name_f] and [name_f]Kira[/name_f] both mean “sun.”

Am- names I like:

Or you could use her birthstone or birthflower.

I second [name_u]Ember[/name_u]!

[name_f]Amber[/name_f] is fossilized tree sap so what about a tree name?
Or choose a Jurassic [name_m]Park[/name_m] name, haha.
