I prefer Ambrosia, (which I normally heard in the myths) for the nector (or sometimes food) of immortality and a name. I guess it's just because when I imagine what it's supposed to look like, it's always the classic nymph-like demi-goddesses on Olympus, serving the gods with goblets or fruit (or whatever the food/drink is), and since the servers are almost always women, I just associate it as a feminine name. A very beautiful one too, but Ambrose is a good name too.

Ambrose sounds almost mythical to me ... "Immortal."

This name has always sounded feminine to me. It sounds like a combination of Amber and Rose, and the -rose ending makes the name sound feminine in the same way that Primrose is feminine. Well, I wouldn't use this old-fashioned male name on my daughter, especially because of the type of people who have had it, apart from maybe Ambrose Bierce.

Ambrose Burnside (May 23, 1824 – September 13, 1881) was a Union General in the Civil War. The facial hair known as 'sideburns' was named for him.

Even given the sideburns association, I like this name. It's very classic and not overly masculine, but I don't find it feminine either. Good middle name if paired with something a little more modern, but could also work as a first name.

I prefer the much older form "Ambrosius," which, incidentally, is a much more beautiful name than "Ambrose."

This is an underused name that is, however, growing in popularity with the more trend-setting baby-namers. Uncommon enough for many people to have not make a connection to it with religion, fortunately.

This name is so cool! It's very uncommon yet old fashioned, which is always a plus in my book :) the only downside is there aren't really any nicknames for it.
