The name Ambre is the French translation of “amber”, the fossilized yellow resin that can be used for jewelry. But the word ultimately derives from Arabic عنبر (‘anbar). This name wasn’t really used until the 1980s, but it has become popular in the 2000s.



The name Agathe is the latinized form of the Greek name Αγαθη (Agathe), derived from Greek αγαθος (agathos), which means “good”. Totally forgotten in the 50s, the name Agathe came back in fashion around the 80s. Do you know any famous Agathe? Most of the time, people think about the writer Agatha Christie.



What a beautiful name! For most people, it reminds them of the green precious stone. So it’s no surprise that in France and in Quebec, it has been in the top 20 of baby names for a few years.
