Amber Noel was a Gryffindor student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She once signed up for Quidditch training at 7pm on Tuesday on a sign-up sheet that was posted on the bulletin board in the Gryffindor Common Room.
The name "Amber" comes from the English word amber that denotes either the gemstone, which is formed from fossil resin, or the orange-yellow colour. The word ultimately derives from Arabic عنبر ('anbar). It began to be used as a given name in the late 19th century, but it only became popular after the release of Kathleen Winsor's novel 'Forever Amber' (1944).
