Baby names meaning light

Baby names that have to do with light in their meaning are associated with fire, flames, torchlight, moon light, sun light, starlight or daylight. A child can be a light bearer, one of brillance, splendor, radiance or delight. The light refered to can be glowing or gleaming in nature, from natural or manmade sources (i.e., lamp), or from God or angels.

Other baby names to consider are those associated with a particular color of light, or on the other hand, the absence of light, i.e., dark names. Creative baby names can be derived from sources of light, such as lasers, the sun, explosions, lighttowers, flashbulb, candles, flint stones, lighters, phosphorencent animals such as fireflies (we here love the nickname of Big Cheif Firefly).

From a scientific view, light means radiation that is visible to the human eye. The choice of giving a child a name that means light, however, probably has more to do with the spiritual/philosophical meaning of light. In particular light is related to enlightenment, vision, seeing things clearly as opposed to darkness, ignorance, evil and religious dogma.

Here are examples of baby girl and baby boy names that mean light in different languages.

For unisex names that mean light consider from the Greek, Leora & Nelly; Hebrew, Meirra; Japanese Hayah; and Scottish, Kenzey. In addition, for names that mean a particular type of light:
