Meaning:the sky
A gemstone known for its striking honey-yellow color, amber the noun can also be Amber the girls' name. Maybe it’s because of “Glee” star Amber Reilly or “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” actress Amber Tamblyn, but girls with this baby name are often determined, talented and resilient with a sweet, soft center. Other gemstone names are ranked higher in the popularity polls, which is good news if you want your precious jewel named Amber to stand out from the crowd.
