  • "Amber is a unique name nowadays especially in Europe. Almost every time someone new meets me they LOVE my name, and I actually hear that so many newborns are being called amber. Saying that there is a ?trashy stereotype? is really stupid. It?s a fun and pretty name unlike someone called ?Karen? or ?Sandra?. Would you rather be friends with someone called Amber, or Carol..."

  • "The name Amber doesn't fit me at all! It has unfortunate associations with strippers & porn stars. It's kinda trashy sounding. Not surprisingly, I was born to an underage mother (I love her dearly & she's a great mom, but even she says she would have given me a different name had she been more mature). I'm going to change it to something classier." Jul. 28, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I think the downward trend of the name Amber is because of the association it now has with "adult" film stars. It's a shame, it is a pretty name but Girls are marked for life with it now. Like Chastity or Charity." Nov. 22, 2005: Report as inappropriate

I was on reddit and I saw "Every Amber is a slut" and I was watching a YouTube video about anylizing the court case between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, and somebody said that all Ambers suck. I feel awful and I hated myself because for one, I'm not a slut. In fact I'm a virgin and I don't plan on changing that any time soon.
