Aquilina does sound more like a magical spell than a name. But it’s, in fact, a moniker of Latin origin, although not without its miracles. Between 63 B.C. and 330 A.D, when the Church was not yet divided, a 12-year-old girl named Aquilina persuaded a pagan friend to convert through example and teachings. For this, she was taken before the governor, where she was asked to renounce her faith. She refused, and as a result, was tortured and thrown outside the city to be eaten by the dogs. But an angel appears at night and saves her. So, by choosing Aquilina for your little one, you help instill an unshakeable sense of faith and belief in baby. This will carry them through their flight to success and beyond.
