I find the meaning of my name quite disappointing. I thought it meant something more meaningful/significant. I don't quite understand the meaning to be honest.

I love my name and it is amazing, but sometimes people think I'm called Nora, Lauren, Aurora and other names! It's pretty rare though. I like that my name is international and it is in lots of languages.
