Aurelius Origin and Meaning

The name Aurelius is a boy's name of Latin origin meaning "the golden one".

Since Aurelius was given the supermodel seal of approval by Elle Macpherson, this is one of the Roman emperor names, like Augustus, now in the realm of possibility. Like the female Aurelia and Aurora, Aurelius has a particularly warm golden aura.

In ancient Roman history, the name is associated with Marcus Aurelius, a Roman Emperor from 161 to 180 AD, the last of the so-called "Five Good Emperors." He is also considered one of the most important Stoic philosophers.

Aow-ray-lee-uss. I was called Aurelia for a while by my Latin teacher, and it was pronounced Aow-ray-lee-uh.

I've never heard Aurelia or Aurelius pronounced that way. In movies, and the Aurelia I know, it's pronounced or-ell-ee-uh/ss.

I'd say Or-RAY-lee-us, but then I also say Or-RAY-lee-uh for Aurelia. I think there are quite a few possibilities.
