Baby names meaning sun

From Airplane II:

Simon: Oh my god - the sun!
Elaine Dickinson: What is it Simon?
Simon: A big fiery ball in the center of our solar system, but that's not important right now, we're headed straight towards it.

And indeed, that great big fiery ball attacts a lot of attention as we humans say "nice sunny day," and "sure it's cold but at least the sun is out," and "my future's so bright I've got to wear shades."

Not surprisingly then, various names associated with the sun have been used for naming baby girls and baby boys.

Some come from the names of the sun god from different cultures. Variations of Apollo such as Apollonia, Abellona, Abollo refer to Apollo--the Greek and Roman god of the sun. Helios (as in the Moody Blue's "Brave Helios wake up your steads, bring the warmth the countryside needs") is another name from mythology as is Phoebus (as in Shakespeare's "Full thirty times hath Phoebus' cart gone round Neptune's salt wash and Tellus' orbed ground.").

In Japanese culture, Amaterasu is the sun goddess. In old Norse culture, Freyr is a sun god & Sol (aka Sunna) is the goddess of the sun. In West Africa, Liza; in Egypt, Ra; in Hindi, Surya; in Aztec, Tonatiuh are the name of the sun god.

Other names that mean sun are Elaine, Elidi, Ellen, Étaín, Helen, Sharrik, Soleil, Cyrus, Marisol, Girasol, Sundaye, Sundance, Sunshine, Sunny, Dawnna, Ray.

One of our favorites is Heliodoro, lover of the sun in Portugues and Spanish.
