Other Forms FormsAuxíliadora
The first element of this name is derived from Latin auxiliaris "helping, aiding, assisting", which in turn is derived from Latin auxilium "help, aid, assistance". Also see AUXILIUS. The second element is derived from Greek doron "gift". As such, one could say that the name means something along the lines of "helpful gift" or "help is a gift". This is an epithet for the Virgin Mary, chiefly used in Hispanic countries. An other known bearer of this name is the retired Spanish female football player Auxiliadora Jiménez (b. 1975).
