Gender: Female Origin of Amethyst: Gem and Color name

The name Amethyst is a girl's name . Amethyst and is often added to lists like Gothic Baby Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "Name Association Game".

From the experts:

As flower names become more exotic, so can gem names move beyond Ruby and Pearl to names like Topaz, Sapphire and Peridot. Amethyst, the purple birthstone for February, has never been in the Top 1000, but could have some appeal, joining similarly-hued Violet and Lilac, all of which make great names for Aquarius babies or names for February babies.

In the M.M. Kaye children's novel The Ordinary Princess, the protagonist is Princess Amethyst Alexandra Augusta Araminta Adelaide Aurelia Anne of Phantasmorani --Amy for short --who has been given the "gift" of ordinariness.

Not a drug user either but while I like this name, it wasn't hard for me to find "meth" after hydra pointed it out. Just because someone can find a drug in a name doesn't mean they do it. Assuming something like that grosses ME out.

I was breaking down the name to find another nickname option when I noticed the same thing. Also not on drugs.

Well, I don't do drugs either, but the reason I see meth is because I know a girl with this name, and she actually brags about having meth in her name. I know that's weird, but it's true, and I have no idea why she does it. I apologize if you're offended.

Some people really give themselves away as to what their extra curricular activities might be. I've seen this name several times, and never, ever once noticed the meth in it. But then again, I don't use drugs. Soooo.... :/ I'm sure this comment seems rude but I'm just so grossed out right now.
