Meaning & History

Allegoric name for Finland taken from the Finnish river Aurajoki in south western Finland. While the element joki means "river" in Finnish, the element Aura appears to be derived from Old Norse aurr "moist earth, clay".
In addition to this, Aura is also used as a short form of both Aurora and Aurelia in Finland.

Coincidentally, aura also means both "plough" and "aura" in Finnish.
