Looking for a girl's name that means dawn.

I actually quite like Dawn.

Don't want to use Aurora, just not for me.

I do like Ayelet, "dawn hind/gazelle" in Hebrew.

Stumbled across Aubeline, which allegedly means dawn in French but is potentially way too much like aubergine.

Help!

I like Gloria too.

Aube is French for dawn, and a lovely name in its own right. Otherwise, on the Lucy theme, I used to know a Lucina (Loo-chee-na).

Clare?
Go for Gloria Joy.

Oriana is dawn I think?
And Zara means to blossom .

I've woken up feeling really positive and excited about Gloria!

Do not call your child Gloria. The poor thing.

I think the Gloria on Modern Family will make the name a little bit more mainstream.

Oriana - sunrise
Danica - morning star (think it's pron. Dan-eesha)
Lux - light

I like Gloria Joy. It's different but not faddy, and it's got a lovely fresh feel. I'd do it.

Gloria Joy is beautiful. Maggie Gyllenhaal has a baby daughter called Gloria so it's probably back in fashion!

One of the meanings of Zara is 'radiant dawn'.

Gloria is lovely.

Vita is one of my favorite names though grin

I still like Gloria Joy!

I like Vita as well but for some reason it's not grabbing me for this baby.

Zara - I like, but I've got a very good friend with a 4yo Zara which feels a bit close to home

Lux - I feel I should like but, having grown up in Australia where I think the brand might have been bigger, it's still a soap to me

Oriana - love the look and sound, but there's the cruise ship dimension

Danica - not keen on this one; not sure why....

There have been some really great suggestions on this thread but Gloria Joy just has something about it, even though it's not remotely what I started off wanting!!

I like Gloria too.

So you're sorted! grin

Now all I need to do is push the baby out. Simples grin
