    names that mean "light"

    Can you help me brainstorm?

    My daughter's middle name is Lucille after my grandmother, and it has the meaning "light". My husband's grandma's name is Helen, which means "bright, shining". I like how they have similar meanings. I always thought we would use it as the middle name for our second daughter, both to honor his grandmother and because of the shared meaning - it just seemed fitting to me, but my husband has told me he doesn't really care for the name. He'll ultimately leave it up to me I'm sure (he pushed for Lucille even thought I was hesitant, so I can push for his grandma's name if I want to!), but I'm open to considering other options. I tried using super search already, but it came back with a bunch of names that just have the word "light" somewhere in the description, so it wasn't entirely helpful. I figured my fellow berries could do a better job

    Phoebe means "bright, pure." There's also Lior or Liora which means "my light" if you're open to another L name.

    I like Helena for you because it's so close to Helen! However, of these names, my favourites are Aurora and Eliora.
