    WDYT of Aurelia (prn. Ah-Reh-lee-ah)

    I have seen this name posted on various sites and really like it. I am sure there are numerous ways to pronounce this name, but this is the prettiest way in my opinion. WDYT of the name? What would make a good mn? What would make good sibling names? Thanks!

    Hi there! I think Aurelia is beyond gorgeous! I pronounce it aw-ray-lee-ah, although I'm not sure if this is correct. I've also heard aw-reh-lee-uh and uh-reel-ya, so this is definitely one of those "huh?" names when it comes to pronunciation!

    I think you were considering Genevieve, and Aurelia is lovely with Genevieve.

    Some other names that work with Aurelia:

    Anneliese
    Astrid
    Arabella
    Beatrix
    Camille
    Clara
    Daphne
    Delphine
    Diana
    Dahlia
    Esme
    Evangeline
    Emmeline
    Francesca
    Genevieve
    Georgiana
    Helena
    Isadora
    Juliet
    Josephine
    Liliana
    Matilda
    Mirabelle
    Odessa
    Phoebe
    Rosamund
    Rosalie
    Rosalind
    Scarlett
    Simone
    Tamsin
    Viviana
    Zara

    Best wishes to you, KansasGirl! :-)

    I love Aurelia (and say Ow-rel-ee-ah) (in my defense, that's how I first heard it a very long time ago). But would have no problem saying it however the person said it. I think Aurelia is gorgeous!
    It didn't make the cut for us, but I'd love to see it used and/or meet one (or more!)

    Some random middles:
    Aurelia Violet
    Aurelia Iris
    Aurelia Lucy
    Aurelia Irene
    Aurelia Flora
    Aurelia Giselle
    Aurelia Niamh
    Aurelia Vienne
    Aurelia Ginevra
    Aurelia Carys
    Aurelia Lily
    Aurelia Patrice
    Aurelia Beatrice
    Aurelia Therese
    Aurelia Jane
    Aurelia Ruby
    Aurelia Gioia
    Aurelia May
    Aurelia Katherine
    Aurelia Frances
    Aurelia Coralie
    Aurelia Penelope
    Aurelia Esme
    Aurelia June

    Hope that helps!

    I think Aurelia is beautiful. It's unique but totally accessible (which is the sweet spot in my opinion). Jill and Lola have great suggestions, as always! For middle names I love:

    Aurelia Genevieve
    Aurelia Josephine
    Aurelia Scarlett
    Aurelia Simone
    Aurelia Violet
    Aurelia Beatrice
    Aurelia Jane
    Aurelia Frances


    I also like:

    Aurelia Juliet
    Aurelia Pearl
    Aurelia Clementine
    Aurelia Eve
    Aurelia Maeve

    Many of the above would work as sibling sets as well!

    I had a girl named Aurelia a few years ago in class. She went by the nickname Lia. FYI for a possible nickname

    Makes me think of the movie Love Actually. It's a beautiful name!

    LOVE it. Would love to use it myself, but I have such a harsh, German last name that it ruins Aurelia - a name I picture a pretty Italian or Spanish woman having. Also reminds me of Love, Actually (which as a guy I probably shouldn't admit).

    Aww, Irishmuth, I know a dozen women who would love a guy who admitted to liking "Love, Actually"!
