Aquila

Aquila comes from an Ancient Roman cognomen meaning “eagle” from Latin aquila which derives from an unknown origin though it could be derived from Latin aquilus (dark-colored, swarthy), though another possible derivation for aquilus is Latin aqua (water) derived from a PIE root word. Aquila is the name of a constellation, the name of a genus of eagles, as well as a surname derived from the given name. Although Aquila was traditionally a masculine name in Ancient Roman (with Aquilina being its feminine form), it has been used as a female name in the modern English-speaking world.

Origin: Latin, Proto-Indo-European
