    Radiant Lads

    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!
    Possible Names:

    Liam Ezra Aoife Roisin Fionn Mordecai Clara Rosemary Leo Benedict Eloise Clodagh

    Lysander * Hyperion * Oliver * Roderick * Seamus * Niall * Edmund * Draco * Tadhg
    Lilyanna * Lux * Saoirse * Helena * Emma * Luna * Ellie * Ava * Arurora

    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.
