Amberley is the name of an English Village and Castle found about an hour South of London. The castle dates back to the 12th Century. The name explaining the origin of the English word in relation to the village states: "The name of Amberley is a subject of much learned debate. It is likely to have its origins in the old English word amber meaning a measure of volume. The suffix Ley probably refers to a field, so the name may possibly come from a description of agricultural output from one particular field." - See more at: http://www.amberley-pc.org.uk/page.php?id=18#sthash.tFLzJsvO.dup.

Can not remember the name of the book but there is an old novel about a royal family with a Princess named Amberley. Mind you there are many books with the name "Amberly" but I am speaking specifically to this spelling.
