Aurelius is a boy’s name of Latin origin, meaning “golden” or “gilded.” History buffs may know Aurelius because of the 2nd-century Roman Emperor and Stoic philosopher Marcus Aurelius. However, the name actually gets its sparkle from the Latin words aureus and aurum. Like its feminine counterparts, Aurélie 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 historical symbolism and positive meanings, Aurelius ticks every box.
