Here are some of the multi-cultural best—and with them our very warmest wishes for a very HAPPY NEW YEAR to all!


Soft, poetic and romantic, Aurora is the name of the Roman goddess of the dawn whose tears turned into the morning dew—not to mention being the name of Disney’s sleeping beauty. It’s a name that is definitely on the ascent, having climbed more than 500 spots in the past decade.
