I'm curious to know if anyone knows any names that mean Bright, Light, Shining, Luminous, or has anything to do with stars, or anything such as that. I'm having trouble finding names for boys that mean such things as this, for girls it's much more easier and I have a long list of them. I'll gladly accept any suggestions, and Thank you ahead of time!

Good suggestions so far. The only others I can think of off the top my head are Hyperion (Titan who ruled over sun and light) and his son Helios (sun god). Sisters were Selene (moon) and Eos (dawn). I'll think on it and come back if I find anything.
These are all boys names:
Beacon (Not sure what it means, not even sure if it's a name, but I like the sound of it!)
Abner (God is a light)
Barak (Though it's the president's name, it means "flash of light')
Lior (Kind of like Dior.. Means "My light")
Fingall (Kind of looks like finger, but Finn is a cute nn... Means "Stranger with light")
Jair or Jairus (He will light up)
Kiran (Ray of light)
Neriah (Burning light of God)
Uriah (The Lord is light)
Brighton (Bright settlement)
Gilbert (Bright oath)
Ingel (Bright angle)
Robin (Bright fame)
Some of those are a bit weird, but I hope I could help!
At this website, you can search names by meaning. It's where I found all my names for this list.
Oh yay! Such brilliant names were mentioned!
Alexa400 - I think Lior, Belenus, & Lux are dashing, though I do look at Lux as a girl name, never heard it for a boy before!
Ribbons-and-Soldiers - Taliesin is an interesting name, I've never heard it before, nor Astrophel. Hesperos I think is my favorite.
Redwoodfey - I love Hyperion, and have for a long time! Helios is a lovely name as well.
Faithnamer - I like Dritan for some reason, it sounds made up but it flows so well to me! A few others I liked were Jairus, Uriah, & Killian. I loved Lucan!
Ikfly - Elrond is darling! (Then again I'm biased since I adore Lord of the Rings) I also like Orion, and Uri.
