Meaning:Divine aura; Disc of the sun or moon
If you’d like a name that illuminates baby’s angelic nature, Halo is a compelling contender. This ethereal title stems from the Greek halos, meaning “disc of the sun or moon,” entering the English language during the 16th century. Halo replaced the word “glory” in relation to divine light, adopting the meaning “divine aura.” Halos often feature in spiritual artwork around significant figures to emphasize their divinity. From the Egyptian god Ra to Jesus Christ, Buddha, and the Zoroastrian god Ahura Mazda, halos universally symbolize the divine awesomeness of these powerful beings. Only a name as heavenly as Halo will do for your little cherub.
