Amara is a Greek name meaning eternal. Strong, attractive, stylish, and multicultural this name is also the Esperanto form of Mary--in the misbegotten language that was once the hope for a completely international form of communication. The African meaning we list is the best-known and the one many parents reference when choosing the name. But Amara is also a Sanskrit name meaning immortal and a Mongolian name meaning peaceful, and is the Italian word for bitter (same root as Maryam and Miriam) occasionally used as a first name in the Latin countries. A true multicultural choice enjoying some popularity in both the U.S and the U.K.
A goddess is a female deity with supernatural powers in polytheistic religions. Goddesses most often have female characteristics that are apotheosized in their pure form, and some cases they have rather general for all humans characteristics, both men and women, like Sophia, and other times they can have characteristics that are rather not specific for women like battle and hunting success (Artemis). Thus while they have been, are and may be associated with as wide a range of phenomena as male deities, including war, creation and sometimes destruction (and death), life-giving, healing and compassion, they have been especially associated with beauty, love, motherhood and in prehistoric religions and also later with the Earth, fertility (Mother-goddess cult in prehistoric times).
In some religions, a sacred female figure holds a central place in prayer and worship. Shaktism, the worship of the female force that animates the world, is one of the three major sects of Hinduism. In Tibetan Buddhism, the highest advancement any person can achieve is to become like the great female Buddhas (e.g. Arya Tara) who are depicted as being supreme protectors, fearless and filled with compassion for all beings.
The primacy of a monotheistic or near-monotheistic "Great Goddess" is advocated by some modern matriarchists as a female version of, preceding, or analogue to, the Abrahamic God associated with the historical rise of monotheism in the Mediterranean Axis Age.
Polytheist religions, including Polytheistic re-constructionists, honor multiple goddesses and gods, and usually see them as discrete, separate beings. These deities may be part of a pantheon, or different regions may have tutelary deities. The re-constructionists, like their ancient forbears, honor the deities particular to their country of origin.

In my eyes Goddesses are perfect. Force of nature and primal. Why would they be anything but? We don't know the reason yet why The Darkness needed a human vessel and to grow inside one but she did and she blossomed to be a beauty. For me her dress followed the line that our history has followed to present times how Goddesses look and are dressed. Amara's dress was subtle, elegant and simple. Even her shoes was so it is weird to get stuck to only part that shows off skin. (As you can see from other examples she is subtle with how she dresses as a goddess) Even her hair and makeup is simple. And she is also free with her body although even I would like for her form's sake for her to use a bra but that is another matter and it doesn't mean squat for an eternal being. But the reaction to her dress has gone to extremes and the curves that are not even really showing... I really don't understand it and I am a woman. What is the big deal? It feels like she would have only been allowed to dress like a nun. (btw. that is even sexier to some people. Less you see is more etc.)
In all honesty. I don't want a Goddess to look like me nor an ordinary person (Like Metatron tried to do) or act by by the laws people have. That is why also angels (God's creation) are all called beautiful because they are meant to be that and so has the Goddesses also been before Amara on the show. She looked good but for me something else would have been way more sexier. That is what makes people special. We have variation among us and among people nobody's perfect. Also because of this Amara's and Dean's chemistry or sexual interaction doesn't bother me at all as don't we sexualise also Sam and Dean all the time and it doesn't matter what they are wearing? And like many have said. It is Dean so who wouldn't? I think we will get more about that story still. I actually see Amara's reaction natural. She is partly human after all.
Other Goddesses on the show:
Kali, Calliope, Eve, Vesta, Veritas and Artemis
I asked also hubby about Amara and he will write about his thoughts later. First thing he said though was. "Oh, she had a revealing dress? I didn't notice that."
