I have been going crazy looking for the origin of the name AMARANTH ever since I met a little girl with that name. apparently it's the name of a mythological flower that never fades but this little girl's father told me that Amaranth was a mythological character. I desperately want to learn more about this character, if she exists, but I can't find her anywhere. Anyway, I think most would agree that it's a lovely name.
Amaranth comes from the Greek amarantos meaning "never fading." It is the name of a flower, as well as a grain that comes from the seeds of plants of the amaranth genus. In Greek mythology, the flower symbolized immortality.
