Names that mean 'light'

I just realized we had a theme without even trying. Both Luke and Nora mean light (and they have the same number of letters!)

If we can find a 3rd name that has something to do with light, I might stick with it!

Do you know any other names that might fit this theme? Thanks ladies!!

    I think Ellen means light or bright. Eliora is Hebrew for "the Lord is my light."

    *eta checked it out. Ellen does mean "bright, shining light" as does Elena. My guess is that Any variation of Helen/Helena will have that meaning.

    Um... you don't actually have a theme because Luke does not mean light. I'm sure a million websites have told you that it does, but, as someone who actually does ancient history and languages, I promise you that it doesn't. At all. Likewise Nora. No light-related meaning whatsoever. That said, there are lots of beautiful names that have light-related meanings (I'm going to count moon/sun/star meanings for the sake of variety), for instance:

    Girl:

    Lucia

    Clara

    Orli

    Natela

    Aurora

    Eos

    Niamh

    Astraia/Astraea

    Artemisia

    Artemis


    Boy:

    Apollo

    Phoebus

    Helios

    Orion

    Sirius

    To all of this I shall add:

    Seren
    Nia

    Clare (my name) means light!  It has also gained popularity recently.  Growing up, I was the only Clare in my circle besides my aunt. Oddly enough, "light" was apparently my first word.

    Yep, I have a Claire. Light, bright, clear. 

    Hugo / Hugh means Bright, but more in the way of intelligence.
