  1. Ik her hair would be red, so Ember was fitting ?

  2. I named my daughter Ember because I always want her to be on fire for God. I think it’s so unique and such a pretty name for a girl

  3. Her name is Emberleena. Y’all don’t have it. So had to pick Ember.
    I love my baby girl’s name Emberleena. No one else has her name.
    She was 7 pounds and 9 oz when born..she is now 11 pounds even. She was a week and two days pass her due date.
    She is beautiful and I am so bless and thankful for her.

  4. We love the name Ember for our little girl. It fits her perfectly. We do dislike how often it gets mistaken for Amber. But her nickname is Em and so I think that helps people.

  5. She is firey and strong. I hate that people call her Amber instead of Ember. We saw the name on a list of uncommon names and we fell in love with it.

  6. We wanted our little girl to be a light (or ember) for Jesus
