Myosotis Says:


I really like Amara and Damaris already, and this is really beautiful too. I haven't done much research into origin, meaning etc. yet but I'm liking the apparent 'child of the moon' meaning. Wish there was a description for it, seeing as it is a legitimate name.

Tara M Says:


My daughter's name is Amaris. It means God has promised (Hebrew) and child of the moon (Spanish). I dreamt that I was pregnant with a girl named Amaris when my husband and I were struggling with infertility. I had never heard the name before and when I saw the meaning, it gave me hope. I said if I got pregnant with a girl I would name her Amaris and 3 years and 1 month later, we found out I was pregnant with her
*We pronounce her name Ah-mare-iss not like amorous
