Meaning of Amber

Amber is a Persian name for girls that means “ambergris”, a fragrant material extracted from a type of whale. Amber is also an English word referring to a precious material used in jewelry making, which is made up of fossilized tree resin. Both the Persian and the English names are originally derived from the Arabic word Anbar, which has the meaning of “ambergris” like the Persian name.
