Arun is a boy's name of Indian origin. In Sanskrit, it means "dawn" and symbolizes the rich, red, and earthy colors that appear as the morning sun takes its place in the sky. Arun also has cultural roots in Hebrew and means "enlightened" or "exalted." There is something enlightening and life-affirming about witnessing the sunrise, so perhaps these origins are more connected than you think.
