I think that all of the male names that share a root with this name, including Aurelius, are really, really enjoyable. Although I have not read the book (yet), I believe that Aureliano is a major character in the magical realism novel "One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

I also came to know of this name through the novel ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE. Colonel Aureliano fathers seventeen[!] sons bearing the same name...

I feel this name is somewhat stodgy, with an air of authority to it... How can it not, when the old term for a person studying butterflies is "aurelian" [vs the proper term, lepidopterist].

I'm glad a commentator mentioned there is a feminine form. It sounds pretty, prefer it over the masculine version. Besides, what other names are associated with butterflies?
