    Names that mean dawn

    I'm looking for names that mean dawn. Other than Dawn. I know about Aurora, and that's a possibility. My father died last year and his name was Donald, and everyone called him Don.

    I'm looking for a word that means Dawn, which sounds like Don, to be used as a middle name for a girl. I'm pregnant and don't know yet if it's a girl or a boy so I guess I'm getting ahead of myself! I just miss my dad so much.

    Im sorry for your loss. Congratulations with your pregnancy, dear, i wish you all the best. Senara, Eos , Roxanna/ Roxanne, Zora, Aruna , Dagny -pn. dawn-yay , Im sorry, im on my phone, and it wont let me skip lines. I think just Dawn would be cute as a middle name. Good luck with your search, and welcome to nameberry.

    I'm sorry for your loss. My husband's father passed away last year as well, also named Donald. We're considering our options for honoring him, too!

    Congratulations on your pregnancy!

    The only one I know of outside of the PP's suggestions is Alba, which I love! Alba, Zora and Aurora are all great 'dawn' names.

    Donya is a female form of Donald; and Ailani | Maelle | Maelys all mean the same thing, 'chief'.

    Also, I realize this is a girls name forum....but some great international variations of Donald for boys: Bohdan | Donal | Donovan

    Good luck to you!

    These are great ideas; another approach could be to use Donna, Donatella, Madonna, Donita, Lindon, Sidonie, or even Daisy ... Is that last suggestion silly?
    Best wishes to you.

    One way to honor your father is to choose a name that contains "don." Names that mean dawn:
