The origin and meaning of this name are both rather obvious, but that’s okay!  🙂

I’m not quite sure how it came about, but I’ve found myself intrigued by this name recently!  Amethysts (the birthstone for February) as the gem they are are also quite beautiful.

I like the name so much that I rather recently gave it to a fairy in a RP!  I was so creative (:P) and did things like giving her hair that’s really dark…but will seem purple-ish in the right light.  XD
It’s held up, too; so it’s not just good in theory…in this instance, at least!
