My granddaughter is named Aurora. She is now 8.We often call her Rory to othe's but she insists on Aurora

My daughter was born in 1996. Her name is Aurora Dannielle. I got grief about naming her after toilet paper, race cars, caskets, etc. Her name is the'same as Sleeping Beauty (Princess Aurora). My daughter was actually named after'storm from Marvel Comics - her real name was Aurora. I think it was (and is) and beautiful name and it fits her perfectly!

My name is Aurora.. I was born in 1995, and I have always loved my name. Growing up, I LOVED the fact that I had the'same name as Sleeping Beauty.. ;) And, i've always had positive comments about my name..people tell me It's beautiful all the time..;) The downside is sharing my name with a few cities, and a car. The upside is sharing my name with the northern lights, dawn, and Sleeping Beauty, of course!

I love the name Aurora, and that is probably b/c of Sleeping Beauty for the most part. Also the name of spunky Shirley MacLaine character in Ter's of Endearment. I also have a thing about 6 letter names that'start with A for my children so it will match mine (Amanda). Let's keep our fingers crossed that "dad" likes it too :)

My name is Aurora Jane, and I somewhat like it, I somewhat don't. I love the fact that it is unique and that I'm named after a princess, the northern lights, and the goddess of Dawn. But I don't like that It'sounds so weird and to some people its difficult to say. Also I think its cute for young kids but its too whimsical for an adult.

I am a kindergarten'teacher, so there a lot of names I hear a lot. I wanted to use a name that is not common , but pretty for my daughter. I too had thought of the'shirley MacLaine character in Ter's of Endearment. I thought she was a strong, independent, classy, and beautiful. The meaning of the name is beautiful and positive. I couldn't think of a better name for my child. She is 14 months old, and I still love the name. I wouldn't change it for anything.

I named my daughter Aurora because I wanted a formal name to go with the'shortening of Rory. I had no clue it was Sleeping Beauty's name. I got it off of a produce truck. Beautiful name, I wouldn't change it. Great formal name if you like the name Rory.

01/12/2023 11:37:10

It has a lovely meaning, but It'seems more fitting for a fictional character's name. I used to love this name as a child, but I now find it a bit too whimsical.

The only bad thing about it is some people (usually older people) have a hard time pronouncing it at first. But It's really not difficult, It's "uh-roar-uh".
