Aurora was the poetic name of the princess in the 1959 Disney film Sleeping Beauty, but is only now rising in popularity. In ancient mythology, Aurora was the lovely Roman goddess of the dawn, whose tears turned into the morning dew. And in science, the Aurora Borealis (aka the Northern Lights) is a natural phenomenon that displays gorgeously colored lights all over the world.
