Its source is anbar, an Arabic name meaning "The amber gemstone, and its color."
This name is sometimes written AmberLyn or Amber Lyn.
Amber is the English name for a semi-precious gem formed from fossilized tree resin, and is also used to describe the gem's tawny golden color. It comes from the Arabic term anbar, which refers not only to the gem, but also to ambergris, a similarly colored and similarly precious substance produced in the intestines of whales and used as a perfume fixative.
The Hindi name originated separately, and is derived from a Sanskrit expression meaning ''The sky.''
