What Did Troian Bellisario Name Her Baby Daughter?

Troian Bellisario Finally Shared Her Daughter’s Name, and My Disney-Loving Heart Is Soaring

A year after Troian Bellisario and her husband, Patrick J. Adams, welcomed their first daughter, Troian finally revealed her oldest child's gorgeous name: Aurora!

On Oct. 4, 2019, Troian wished her daughter a happy birthday on Instagram, writing: "These past 365 days have been the most challenging, hilarious, sleepless, giggle filled, food-on-the-floor, heart-beating-out-of-my-chest, WONDERFUL, life-changing days I have ever experienced. Our daughter, Aurora is 1 year old today and she has already filled @halfadams and me with more joy and gratitude than our souls can handle."

And fun fact: her beautiful name isn't Disney-inspired, it's actually taken from Roman mythology. "We were looking at the name Helios, and then we thought that Helios had a sister named Eos, and we didn't love Eos," Troian told Teen Vogue in 2019. But then we learned in Roman mythology that Eos was Aurora, which is the goddess of the dawn. And we thought it would be nice that she would be our dawning of a new day in our life, and then we were like, 'Well, that's, you know, laden and cumbersome and really, like, a lot for a name.' So we went back to our other names. [But] Aurora kept on cropping up in both Patrick and my lives. It just wouldn't go away. But now it's really funny, because . . . he didn't know that Aurora was a Disney princess's name. I didn't even think of it, honestly. 'Cause I was thinking about it in terms of the historical context. So many people now are like, 'Oh, like a Disney princess?' And I feel like Patrick's like, 'Ugh.'"
