Origin: Latin
Pronunciation” (AW-lus; OW-lus)

    A Roman praenomen of conjectured meaning, some sources contend that it is Etruscan in origins, others feel that it is derived from the Latin word aula meaning “palace,” or possibly even from the word auvulus meaning “grandfather.” Some sources have listed this as the Latin alternative to the Greek aulos, which was an ancient Greek musical instrument.

    There are several men who bore this name throughout Roman history.
