Because I am the most extra person in the whole world, I want all of my babies names to mean something and then have a common theme as well, so we have an Everly Aurora (northern lights), Orion (star light) Arthur and Aurelia (northern lights again) Rowan. Sooo I need a name that has a light connotation, that also goes with the middle name October smile

I haven't found any that I like! I really need help! It is for a boy but im okay with gender neutral names smile thanks so much!
