Aurora probably came from the lights from the North/South Pole. The lights there are called the Aurora Lights, they're also visible in Iceland.

As an Italian name, Aurora is derived from the Latin word "Aurora," which is of Indo-European origin, and basically means, "Luminous; Dazzling." In the Medieval Ages it was adopted as a very common name, and known to mean, "As Beautiful And Luminous As The Dawn."

I absolutely loved this name for a future daughter, until I saw that the origins of the name had an Anti-Christian view. Aurora is the mother of the dawn in Roman mythology, and it is speculated that Aurora is the mother of the devil (the "light-bearer" in the Bible). I am somewhat heartbroken that such a beautiful and unique name can have such a dark connection to it, as I am a Christian, and very attuned to those things. Over my dead body, will my child have a name that carries any implication of being the Mother of HELL! So disappointed...
