Sounds like the feminine form of Ambrose. Also can be a rock band name for the band Ambrosia. It's not terrible...

I knew a girl in school as a kid named Ambrosia everyone called her Rose. I still think this is a beautiful name.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


There are food names and God/goddess names. But naming your kid after the food of the gods doesn't make much sense to me.

AldabellaxWulfe Says:


God, I love this name! But because it is a 'food' name so to speak, I fear it may be interpreted by others as a more eccentric version of your average stereotypical stripper names, e.g. - Honey, Candy, Cherry etc. So I'm tied between thinking that Ambrosia is a more elegant, upper-class choice or... not.
