The meaning of the name is a blend of two words.
Aura - the distinctive atmosphere or quality that seems to surround and be generated by a person, thing, or place
Orenda - the invocation of the power of human will to change the world around us. It is set up to be the opposing force to fate or destiny. If powerful forces beyond your control are trying to force you one way, orenda is a kind of voiced summoning of personal strength to change fate.
