User comments for Aura
Also an ancient Greek name from the ancient Greek word "aura", meaning "soft wind". In Greek mythology Aura was the goddess of the dawn wind, daughter of Perivoia and the Titan Lelantas.
In Latin, "aura" means "air, blowing, breath, wind, upper air, heaven, smell, glitter, echo".
Aura means "breeze" or "soft breeze" in Greek and Latin, so its origin is Greek not English. The more original Greek name is Aure (aw-REE) which I too like, perhaps even more but it's not in the name list. I think both are just soft and lovely.
In Finnish Aura is derived from Aurora (or the Finnish alternative form, Auroora), but it also means 'plough', is both a river and a municipality in southwest Finland, and is a popular type of blue cheese. As a given name it has been used over 3000 times and as a surname it has had a bit under a thousand bearers.
