Traces back to Arabic "anbar" and defines itself with English vocabulary word, "amber", a gemstone from fossilized tree resin or its golden color. First entered the popularity chart in 1945, following the publication of U.S. best-selling novel, "Forever Amber," by Kathleen Winsor and peaked in the top 20 between 1981 and 1993. Continues to hold value as a nature name for boys and girls, but more widely used for girls. Frequently combined with other elements to create trendy versions like Amberlynn and Amberkalay or hyphenated names such as Amber-Rose and Amber-Rae.
