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!
My name is Amethyst and it's been frustrating since the day I was born. Teachers can't pronounce it or don't try (they see a "T" and give up. Like "AMTlkjdsfhgl,") people CONSTANTLY misspell it, even in official medical records (why would they put a Q in my name?? WHERE DO YOU HEAR A "Q" IN AMETHYST??) and it's been incredibly saddening. Especially when I live in a neighborhood where so many people have strange, made-up names, names pronounced differently than the words they're based on or misspelled, names in foreign languages, etc. You'd think people would TRY. So I go by "Amy."
In my own mind, though, I love my name and think it's beautiful. I feel so classy and special, even if other people can't appreciate how beautiful my name is.
