  1. My name is Amethyst and everyone calls me Ame for short. I’ve had 2 friends to adopt the name for their children.

  2. my name is amethyst? idk what to say

  3. We chose the name Amethyst because it is not a common name, its her dads favorite color, and the meaning behind the name means alot to her father and I. We love everything about her name. Nicknames are kind of hard to come up with though.

    • I like the nickname Amy for Amethyst. If her middle name is short, you could call her Amy-___
