The name Amber is a girl's name . Amber is ranked #375 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Color Names for Babies and discussed in our forums with posts like "Girls Makeover - Two Middles".
From the experts:
Though perhaps not as currently stylish as Ruby, Jade, or Pearl, Amber has a colorful history (remember the notorious Forever Amber heroine?) and is currently ranked at Number 375. Unfortunately, it does come with the "Amber Alert" connotation for modern parents (and their children).
