I apologise the lack of posts lately (yet again), my studies have been catching up on me. As I've already blogged about September names, I thought that this time, since it's the first day of autumn tomorrow, I'll post about names with meanings related to gold, and golden colours, which is a common sight at this time of year. This is quite a short post, so please bear with me. Happy autumn!
Golda is of Yiddish origins and has a meaning of "gold". In the United States, it hasn't made an appearance on the popularity charts since 1936, where it ranked at #900.
Eurwen is of Welsh origins and is derived from the element "aur", which has a meaning of "gold".
Oria is of Italian origins and wasn't used as a name until the eleventh century. It is the Italian variation of Aurea, which itself is of Latin origins and has a meaning of "golden".
Orla is of Irish origins as the anglicisation of the Gaelic name Órfhlaith, which has a meaning of "golden princess" as it is combined of the elements "ór" and "flaith" which have meanings of "gold" and "princess" respectively. In England and Wales, Orla ranked at #122 in the popularity charts in 2014.
