Amberly

Origin: English

Meaning: an elaboration of Amber influenced by Kimberly. Amber is from Arabic ‘anbar(عنبر), referring fossilized tree resin, while the -lee or -ley ending is from Old English meaning “clearing” or “grove”.

However, it also has a long history as a surname. Although the origins are unclear, from what I could find it could be an occupational name for someone employed as an enameller (from Anglo-Norman-French amayler), someone who applies color or varnish to ceramics.

Amberly could also be derived from Old English ambler meaning “to walk slowly” and is usually used to describe the easy gait ofa horse, referring to someone who was employed with horses.

Technically speaking, amber is not an actual gemstone but fossilized tree resin.

Variants: Amberley, Amberleigh, Amberle, Ambler, Ambeller, Amble

Lester

Origin: English

Meaning: There are two possible origins to the name. The first is that it could be a variant of litster, a Middle English word meaning “to dye” or “dye”, referring to a textile dyer.

Lester is also derived from the name of a city, Leicester; the first part of the name comes from the name of a river, Ligore, combined with Old English ceaster meaning “Roman fort” from Latin castra “camp”. The first part of the name is a little tricky though Ligore most likely came from the name of a tribe living around the area, possibly meaning “dwellers on the river Legra”

Variants: Lestor

Baylor

Origin: English, German

Meaning: a surname that has its origins in English and German. As an English surname, it possibly comes from the legal term bailor, referring to someone who transfers their personal property to another person for safekeeping during bailment.

It’s also comes from Middle High German beigel, beile meaning “measuring stick”, referring to someone who was an inspector of measures or a maker of measuring sticks. It could also be an occupational name meaning “barrel inspection” or “sealer of barrels”.

Variants: Bailor, Bayler, Bailer, Beilor
