Amber

Origin: Georgia
gender-female
Region Origin: Western Asia

Amber is a feminine name with a range of origins and meanings. It is primarily derived from French and Latin, meaning "amber-colored" or "jewel". The name is also connected to the ancient Hebrew word "chashmal," which refers to a shining metal. In Hindi and Kannada languages, Amber means "the sky". The English word "amber" itself has a fascinating history, originating from the Arabic word "ʿanbar" via Middle Latin and Middle French. Initially, the word referred to the substance now known as ambergris, a solid waxy substance derived from the sperm whale. However, the use of the word "amber" was later extended to include Baltic amber, a fossil resin found in the Baltic region, and this meaning has become the primary sense of the word as the use of ambergris waned.
