Late 16th century: from French ambiant or Latin ambient- 'going around', from ambire.
ambition from Middle English:
Ambition comes from Latin ambire, literally meaning ‘to go round or go about’ (also the source of late 16th-century ambient), but with the more specific sense of ‘to go round canvassing for votes’. From this developed the idea of eagerly seeking honour or advancement.
