Aurelius is a boy’s name of Latin origin, meaning “the golden one.” Aurelius is most widely known as a name because of 2nd-century Roman Emporer and stoic philosopher Marcus Aurelius. However, the name actually stems from the Latin word for “golden” and likely took on life as a baby name when describing someone with fair or golden-colored hair. Like its girl name counterparts Aurora and Aurelia, Aurelius is a unique baby name with a sweet, musical sound. If you’re looking to the past for uncommonly used baby names that are filled with historic symbolism and positive meanings, Aurelius ticks every box.
