*auso- / *auzom > aurum > aurĕus > Aurēlĭus

This name derives from the Latin “Aurum > Aurĕus > Aurēlĭus,” which was the name of an ancient noble Roman family, “the Gens Aurelia.” In turn, the name derives from the Proto-Italic “*auso- / *auzom,” meaning “gold, golden, gilded, gold-colored, beautiful, precious, excellent, magnificent, (in some cases, the meaning is understood as ‘shining, beautiful’). The gens Aurelia was a plebeian family at Rome. The first member of the gens who obtained the consulship was Gaius Aurelius Cotta in 252 BC. From that time, the Aurelii become distinguished in history down to the end of the Republic. The nomen Aurelius is usually connected with the Latin adjective “Aurĕus,” meaning “golden,” and may have referred to the color of a person’s hair.
