Comments and insights on the name Amethyst: | Edit

Well my name is Amethyst and Ya its a cool name and its kinda funny when i meet a new guy or a new friend cause i have to help the say it rite and i love my name cause sometimes it fells like there no one wit the name Amethyst. I just dont hope it becomes a popular name like Ashley.

My name is also Amethyst and yes, it is a very hard name to say sometimes. I meet a lot of people online all the time and they cant say it and when they hear it never believe its my REAL name. Also, guys tend to think its a nice pretty name.

Personal experiences with the name Amethyst: | Edit

My niece is Amethyst, it's a family thing as my mom is Amber, I'm Jade, my sister is Topaz, her unborn daughter she plans to name Ruby and my daughter is Sapphire... What can I say...? We are a family of gems.

My name is also Amethyst. My mom named me this because Amethyst was her favorite jewel and she thought it was very unique. But ever since kindergarten, there has been another girl in my grade with the same name! But other than her, I am yet to find another Amethyst.

This is my niece's name. When my brother first suggested it, I thought it was a little strange. Now she's 6 years old, and I can't imagine any other name for her!

My name is Amethyst and the best thing about it is that when someone calls you from across a room 10 people don't turn around, I have never met or talked to anyone else named Amethyst so it's pretty cool.

My name is Amethyst and I have never met anyone else with this name. I find it quite amusing that most people do not know how to pronounce or spell my name and don't even know that it is a gemstone and the birthstone of February. And no matter how difficult they find my name to be, they never use my nickname!

Nicknames for Amethyst: | Edit

Am, Ammie, or A. Amme or Ammy. Ame or Amy.

Thyst. I know a girl with the name, and I call her Thyst. It started out as a joke, but it just kind of stuck... She seems to like it.

My friends call me Ame, but i hate that people never get the pronunciation correct! Its Ame... (Am-ee; Am-ie) NOT Amy.. (Aim-ee)
