A Mythological Newsworthy Question

Here it is between the 2nd and 3rd period of the third game in the Carolina Hurricanes and I'm needing something to get my mind off the fact that my Canes are down 2 points.  So, I do what any hockey fan would do and that is surf the net for mythology.  

The Arkansas Democrat Gazette had a little quiz on obscure knowledge. You can get the whole thing here, but I was only interested in this question:

7. In Greek mythology, Eos was goddess of the dawn. By what name was she known in Roman mythology?

I got five questions right, I'm ashamed to say, but I did get the mythology question.   Not sure of the answer?  Just check the comment section to make sure you're right.  I'll give you a hint - it is the name of my dog (yeah, I know...I need help).

Oh, and GO CANES!!!!!!!!

By the way, the dog is a golden retriever and the name is also the name of Sleeping Beauty (my wife is a fan of that tale), so it seemed like a good idea at the time.
