*FAGRAZ / FæGER / FARA

Her family is known as the Faronids, named after her brother Saint Faro.

Origin:
Name Root:
*aus- / *aues > aurōra
Meaning:*
This name derives from Latin “aurōra,” which in turn derives from Pie (Proto Indo-European) “*aus- / *aues,” meaning “down, shine, shed light, east, the eastern peoples (used to wish the beauty and brightness of dawn).” In Roman mythology, Aurora, goddess of the dawn, renews herself every morning and flies across the sky, announcing the arrival of the sun. Her parentage was flexible: for Ovid, she could equally be Pallantis, signifying the daughter of Pallas, or the daughter of Hyperion. She has two siblings, a brother (Sol, the sun) and a sister (Luna, the moon). Rarely, Roman writers imitated Hesiod and later Greek poets and named Aurora as the mother of the Anemoi (the Winds), who were the offspring of Astraeus, the father of the stars.

Origin:
Name Root:
kefa > Kēphâs > pétrā > Pétros > Petrus
Meaning:*
This name derives from Latin “petra” (Petrus), from the Ancient Greek “pétrā ‎(πέτρᾱ) Pétros (Πέτρος),” from the Aramaic word “kephas,” which in turn derives from the Syriac “kefa,” all words meaning “stone, rock” (figurative meaning: reliable, stable and resolute). Saint Peter, according to ancient tradition, was a prominent early Christian leader, one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ, according to the New Testament. He is venerated as a saint and considered by the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and Oriental Orthodoxy to be the first bishop of Rome and the first Pope. Roman Catholics believe him to have been the first Pope and all subsequent popes to have been his successors, and therefore sometimes refer to the Pope or the Papacy itself as Peter.

Origin:
Name Root:
*khasalaz > hæsel
Meaning:*
This name derives from the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) “hæsel,” which in turn derives from the Germanic “*khasalaz,” meaning “Hazel, light brown color.” This name became popular in English-speaking countries during the late 19th and early 20th-centuries, along with other names of plants or trees used for girls. Hazel is also referred to as a word to indicate the color of the eyes. The hazels are a genus of deciduous trees and large shrubs native to the temperate Northern Hemisphere. The genus is usually placed in the birch family Betulaceae, though some botanists split the hazels (with the hornbeams and allied genera) into a separate family Corylaceae. The fruit of the hazel is the hazelnut.

Origin:
Name Root:
pḗnē ōps (-elōps) > pēnelōps > Pēnelópē
Meaning:*
This name derives from the Pre-Greek “pēnelōps (πηνέλοψ / πηνέλωψ) Pēnelópē (Πηνελόπη),” composed of two elements: “pḗnē (πήνη)” (plot, weft, spool, tale, story) plus “ōps (ὤψ)” (to the eye, in the face, eye). The usual meaning is “weaver, duck, some bird.” It should be noted that the second part of the name could be from the Pre-Greek suffix “-elōps (-έλωψ),” often used for predatory animals. In Homer’s Odyssey, Penelope is Ulysses’ wife, who keeps her suitors under control in her long absence before rejoining him. Latin references to Penelope revolved around the sexual loyalty to her absent husband. It suited the martial aspect of Roman society representing the tranquility of the worthy family. She is mentioned by various classical authors, including Plautus, Propertius, Horace, Ovid, Martial, and Statius.
