"I named my daughter Ember in 1973. I thought the meaning 'the last glow of a dying fire' was nice. I always had to correct people and tell them her name was not Amber. I have known of two other girls with this name. People have always told me it was a pretty name. I wanted something different." Jul. 14, 2015:
"My name is Ember, and i love it and im proud of it!!! :)" Jun. 18, 2015:
"My name is Ember as well. People nearly always think it's Amber at first, and correcting them can get pretty tiresome. A lot of the time, when they find out my real name they do compliment me, and a surprising number have asked me if my parents were hippies, which, well, yeah... I live in a rather largely populated city and travel quite a bit, but have only ever met one other Ember, which does make me feel pretty unique. More than a few times I've contemplated dying my hair red to fit the name haha" Jul. 20, 2014:

"My mom's best friend thought the name Ember was a good, strong name for me. I love it! But since it's not such a popular name people oftentimes call me Amber, or sometimes even Ender (like the movie). Many people have complemented me on it and I've only met 2 other girls with this name. It's unique and I'd never want to change it." Oct. 19, 2017:
"My name is Ember and I really love the name and how I got it. I was born right when the biggest fire in the area that I was born was dying down. The forest fire lasted along time and I have a news paper about the fire and it takes about me. It's very magical and I have never meet another Ember. I do always get confused for the name Amber though." Mar. 17, 2017:
"My name is Ember and people often ask me if I mean "Amber" or they pronounce it as Amber. When they finally get it right they think it's pretty cool or unique and compliment me. Since I live in a smaller town I am the only Ember they have ever met. I have never met any one with the same name as me, I have never found any customized key chains or anything else with my name on it. As a kid that really bummed me out and I hated my name but as I grew older I really began to love it because it set me aside from the rest and made me hard to forget." Nov. 4, 2012:
