Ember Name Meaning

Ember is a vocabulary word in English that refers to the smoldering remnants of a fire that appears in the form of glowing ashes. “Ember” actually stems from the Old English “æmerge”. This word, in turn, has its roots in the Germanic word “aima” which means “ashes”. The root source is also connected to conceptions such as burning and glowing. In terms of the metaphors attached to it in literacy, Ember can refer to the remains of a slowly dying love and passion. As a female name in America, Ember came to use in the 21st century when American parents were looking for more unique and innovative names. We can also look at Ember as the modified version of Amber. Nowadays Ember is mostly seen in the U.S. and Canada.

I definately agree that the name is both strong and gender nuetral as I am a 24 yr old woman named Ember! I have never met or heard of any man named Ember, and very few other women named Ember. It's a very rare name where I'm from, and therefore is freqently mistaken for Amber!
