Aurore Dudevant was the real name of George Sand. She was a novelist and lover of the great composer Chopin. She wore men's clothes, smoked cigars, and refused to be barred from places that most women were normally not permitted in her day. A very fiesty woman I admire, though I prefer the English version of her name, Aurora.

In French translations of Homer's "Iliad" and "Odyssey", the epithet accompanying the goddess of dawn is "l'Aurore aux doigts de rose", "the rosy-fingered Dawn".
The Greek version of her name is Eôs.

This was the name of Sleeping Beauty's daughter in the original version of the story by Charles Perrault (which has a second part after the wedding of the prince and princess). The ballet by Tchaikovsky applied the name to Sleeping Beauty herself, and Disney used it in the English form Aurora.
