The traditional tales from ancient Rome led to the development of an exquisite cast of characters and their stories that helped explain the foundation of Rome and became the basis for its religion. Some of the names that became a strong part of the daily life of an ancient Roman just so happen to make completely beautiful baby names.
Some of these gorgeous names are as familiar to us as our own names. Victoria, for example, was borne by one of the most famous queens in British history. It is also the name of the Roman goddess of victory.
Other names here are not quite as familiar but would still make an excellent choice for the modern baby. Aurora, while well-known to Disney fans as the name of the heroine in Sleeping Beauty, was actually the name of the Roman goddess of the morning. Dido is a very unique choice (and is also the name of a famous British singer). Juno, Laverna, Maia, Rhea and Camilla are all also great picks for families looking for an uncommon name that isn't too "out there."
Whatever type of baby name you're looking for, these Roman mythology baby names may be right up your alley.
