I'm really close to my Aunt Dawn and would love to honor her in one of my future children's names but I hate the name Dawn but I love the name Aurora which means the Goddess of the Dawn. Could I use that to name her after my Aunt? Do you know of any other names like this?

I think Aurora would be good to honor her. But just in case, here are some others:

Asa - japanese - born at dawn
Roxanna - Persian - Dawn
Roxanne - English - Dawn
Roxy - American - Dawn
Sahara - Arabic - Dawn
Zora / Zorana - Slavic - Dawn

  • Interests:I LOVE reading. I'm into almost every genre and generally read a book a week, if possible. I like Iris Johansen, Karen Marie Moning, Stephen King, James Patterson, Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontë, Diana Gabaldon, Kathy Reichs, and Robert Burns (every Scot's favorite author). I really love music and even got accepted to the Mason Gross School of Performing Arts at Rutgers University (my alma mater) for vocal performance. Unfortunately performance life was not for me, so I went into English Lit and French instead. Music is still a big part of my life, and I like a multitude of musical genres from Reggae to Rock to Opera. I've seen Carmen and La bohème each twice. (And I cry every time.) My husband and I also have a special place in our hearts for The Beatles.

I think Aurora is lovely and is a nice tribute, though not an overt one, to your aunt.

It's a great idea!

For the record, I love the name Dawn.

I kindof think that nameing a child after someone is naming them after the person.

But honoring them is different. So yes, it works.

Though my mom (Betty) disagreed when I suggested Bethany or Elizabeth when I said I might name a daughter after her or to honor her. She insisted it wouldnt be honoring unless it was Betty (Though I dont like Betty as a nn either so I guess she's right in that case)

I think Aurora is a beautiful name. Its hard for me to say though. Though, so is Sascha but I love it too :)

It's the ror and sas in them I think
