The prominent surname Amber originated in France, a country which has been a dominant presence in world affairs for centuries.The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in France were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. The surname Amber is derived from a Germanic personal name composed of the elements "land," which means "land" or "territory," and "berht," which means "bright" or "famous."
