my husband is really keen on the name Aurelia for a girl but I am not so sure... I am trying not to be swayed by my parents or the in-laws but I would really appreciate hearing some opinions

I think it's lovely.

It's beautiful.

Lovely name. We have one in the family.

Sylvia Plath's mum was called Aurelia. It's unusual in a nice way.

Have you come up with anything you favour more?

Rhubarbgarden Wed 03-Jul-13 22:22:16

I like it.

ThePieSmuggler Wed 03-Jul-13 22:24:49

I do like it, but unfortunately it makes me think of the word areola. Probably just my oddness but there you gosmile

Very pretty. I like Aurora too.

Would you shorten it?

mamalovesmojitos Wed 03-Jul-13 22:43:01

Lovely name.

PrincessOfChina Wed 03-Jul-13 22:44:29

Love it. It was in our list for DD and if we had another I think it might be a front runner.

I love it. Had an Aurelle at school.

Aurelia would have been one of 3 possibles if DS had been a DD. I think it's lovely.

farmersdaughter Thu 04-Jul-13 09:21:37

I love it.

On my list DH not keen

It's a lovely name. Reminds me of Love Actually as I think the lady Colin Firth's character falls for has that name.

A colleague in France is called Aurelie which I also really like.

Graceparkhill Thu 04-Jul-13 09:28:01

Beautiful name.

fanjobiscuits Thu 04-Jul-13 09:28:24

I had the same thought as pie smuggler

Pixieonthemoor Thu 04-Jul-13 18:56:16

Love it but only if the first part rhymes with oar and not ow.

Christelle2207 Thu 04-Jul-13 20:28:44

Beautiful and reminds me of Colin firth's love interest in love actually too.
I would be worried about others pronouncing it wrongly though.

AnythingNotEverything Thu 04-Jul-13 20:30:56

Love it.

girliefriend Thu 04-Jul-13 20:32:24

I have a good friend called Aurelie which I think is very pretty smile

Elquota Thu 04-Jul-13 22:33:46

It's nice. Or how about Aurora or Amelia?

lessonsintightropes Thu 04-Jul-13 22:41:59

Love it - a beautiful name. Can it be shortened to Lia too?
