What do you think of the girl's name Amethyst?

This isn’t one I am considering for my list. I’m more uncertain how I feel about it.
I actually just found out that a woman I knew as Amy is really named Amethyst, she just goes by Amy.
What do you think?
Thank you!

  1. the amethyst stone is beautiful. i don’t really like it as a persons name. i mean your friend calling herself amy says it all.

  2. I think it’s beautiful and different. So what if it’s not an expensive stone? *pokes ppl above her* It’s beautiful, and so is the name.

  3. Its some kind of diamond. The thought behind it is cute, just like Heaven spelled backwards, but I don’t like the way it sounds. :/

  4. I dont think the meth thing is a big deal, but maybe I’m wrong I havent really met any girls with this name. Its SO funny cause I actually have loved this as a name for a long time, Amy would be super cute good idea.

  5. Interesting, because Amethyst is a very out there and a little bit Wiccan, and Amy is very simple, american, and conservative. I’m not sure how a child would feel about it, but you should consider things like
    -What are some mean nicknames kids might call them?
    -What are some good alternative nicknames aside from amy?
    -What if my kid doesn’t share my style? Should I go more conservative like Crystal, or Jade?
    Stuff like that. And if you’ve answered all the questions and are still satisfied with Amethyst, then there ya have it!
    😀

  6. Not as appealing as the name Dirt, you can grow life from dirt, an Amethyst is nothing but a pretty stone that serves no purpose except to look pretty

  7. I completely understand why she goes by Amy. I would too if my parents were crazy enough to name me Amethyst. The stone is very pretty (it’s my birthstone), but as a name? No way.

  8. I do not like it at all, it sounds very trendy and sounds like something a hippie might name their child, I can’t blame the women for going by Amy as that is a much better name (course i’m a bit biased on that name, lol).
    – Amy

  9. My name is Amethyst and while people may have trouble pronouncing it at times I have never been teased about it, in fact I get a lot of compliments on what a pretty name it is. People who have trouble with the name usually call me Amy, Ame, or Ames and I have no problem with that. I love my name and wouldn’t trade it for another.
    Amethyst
