Disney’s Sleeping Beauty is…quite possibly my favorite Disney movie!  (Prince Philip doesn’t just show up and get the girl!  He kills a dragon for her!  Plus “Once Upon a Dream” is a splendid song.)

The movie’s main character goes by more than one name, but I prefer this one!

~ Aurora ~

Origin:  Latin

Meaning:  Dawn

(The meaning, I believe, can be attributed to a Roman goddess of sunrise and her tears that wound up as dew on earth.)

The name can also be a reference to the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) but it will always remind me of Sleeping Beauty first!

Amusingly enough, if it wasn’t quite so difficult to say, this might have been my name!  😀
