I'm not a Hebrew scholar or anything, but a lot of sources suggest Aaron to be of unknown Egyptian origin. If that is the case, then I think it may be a variant of the Egyptian A'aru, which is the name of the underworld ruled by the Egyptian god Osiris.

It is pronounced ah-hah-ron in Hebrew.

Strong's Hebrew Lexicon translates Aaron as "Light-bringer", and Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary offers three different meanings: "a teacher; lofty; mountain of strength".

Aaron being the most loyal of all names more so to females than males is also well known for being a hero and for being a true friend as well as an excellent partner.

I find Aaron a very masculine name. It is used in ABC's hit drama "Lost" as Claire's infant son's name, and I have grown rather fond of it.

Aaron is my second son's name and there has been some "controversy with it in my own family of all things". There is an underlying tension because I have a 25 year old cousin named Erin and everyone says it's confusing. Some are even too stupid to pronounce my son Aaron's name the right way. They usually pronounce it the girl Erin. It can be so annoying but I have gotten over it but I don't think they have. Some in my family even make jokes about it. My family can be so stupid. In fact, I haven't said anything, but I don't even like some of their names at all. Thanks, I needed to get this out.

Aaron is a great name. I was called Jonathan but it got so annoying so I got a deed poll and changed my name to Aaron, I LOVE IT! And oh yeah when you change your name people ask a lot of questions, some find it interesting but some don't.

I just love this name for a boy. I wish I had thought of it with one of my 5 boys. I don't know of anyone personally with this name.
― Anonymous User  4/25/2006
It is an awesome name! I like it because it may show that the person is tough and aggressive from the outside, but soft-hearted and caring.

Aaron is the name of a character in William Shakespeare's earliest tragedy, 'Titus Andronicus'. In the play, although Aaron initially starts off as the most villainous character, the birth of his illegimite son by the Roman Empress Tamora significantly alters his personality to the extent that he sacrifices himself for his child.
reservoirdoll1987  12/10/2006
I really like the name Aaron, but ONLY if it is spelled that way. NOT Erin, that is a girl's name.
FirChlis  1/29/2007
Aaron and Erin are totally unrelated. I hate it how some people pronounce them the same.
― Anonymous User  2/11/2007
I and everyone I know pronounces Aaron and Erin the same. How else would you pronounce them?!
earthnut  7/19/2007
We are getting into accents here. Those who pronounce merry, marry and Mary alike would pronounce Aaron and Erin alike. Those who don't (like myself) would use the the "a" sound of Mary for Aaron and the "e" sound of merry for Erin. (There is also the possibility of a different pronunciation of the second syllable, using the "i" sound of in for Erin.)

Although Aaron plays an important role in the early history of the Iraelites, Aaron always stands in the shadow of his charismatic younger brother Moses. He is the second son of Amram and Jochebed, and younger brother of Miriam. Aaron was three years old when young Moses was born.
Patricia Underwood  2/2/2008
If you think it's stupid that people spell it with two a's then blame the person who made it, it's not the people who named the kids fault, maybe they just like it because it's spelt with two a's. I think it's stupid when people spell it Aron - it looks like A-Ron!
ilovespencerc  3/24/2008
Yeh I like the name Aaron but I prefer it spelt like Aàron with the accent on the second A. I would so name my son this.

This is the name of a characer in John Steinbeck's book "East of Eden". This character chooses himself to spell it Aron, and has a twin brother named Caleb ("Cal"); they're story is a reflection of that of Cain and Abel's in the Bible.
rustytyger  7/31/2008
Aaron's a nice name, much better than Aaren or Erin, but I don't like how there are two a's.
Name Rater  8/3/2008
I very much like the name Aaron, though it is mostly influenced by two things:

1) Sir Aaron, a character in the Pokemon movie 'Lucario and the Mystery of Mew'. I love the whole 'aura' theme, and have watched the movie many times.

2) Claire's son on the TV show LOST, as mentioned above.

MaggieSimpson  2/15/2009
There always seems to be a lot of confusion between the pronunciation differences of Aaron, Erin, and Eireann. Aaron is pronounced A-rin (with "A" sounding like bat or cat and "rin" sounding like bin or pin). Erin is pronounced E-rin (with "E" sounding like bet or pet and "rin" sounding like bin or pin). Eireann is pronounced ER-in (with "ER" sounding like air and "in" sounding like bin or pin). That said, these pronunciations are based on a Northeastern American accent.
Mystic  6/4/2009
I'm a 19 year old girl. My name is Courtney Aaron and it's really terrible. Both Courtney and Aaron are boys name and they're both so disgustingly common that there's really no way to distinguish myself in a university of 30,000 students. I hate it. It sounds harsh on the ears especially in Texas where it's (AIR-in) or even worse with the Texas dipthong (AY-er-in). Would change my name in a heartbeat if it wouldn't hurt my parents feelings.
Aaronmiles  9/12/2009
My favorite boy's name. To me, Aaron means strong, caring, loving, and respectful; a man who fights for what's right. Wonderful boys name.

This name is nice enough but I can't help thinking of Aaron Carter. Lol.
GrapeGirl93  5/5/2010
For those of you who don't like the spelling of this name, you have two options. You can drop one A, or you can add the H, for Aharon, which is the original and more accurate transliteration of the name. It really is that simple.
Atarah Derek  5/18/2010
It's not my first choice to name a son. But it's not that bad. I don't find it horrible or silly. I find it... just a little too common and mature for my taste.

StrangeFate  1/23/2011
"Aaron" (pronounced AIR-onh) sounds horribly shallow and uneducated... I associate the name with immature High School/early College male students who waste their tuition partying and becoming the beach-bums they truly are-- lifelessly. In the young 2000s the name was at a height where I called home. It truly began there, where I first thought of the name as the "Unintelligent, Blonde High School 'Hottie'"... certainly not the definition of brains. That does not necessarily mean I dislike all who bear the name-- I have met some incredibly kind people, actually. But for "Aaron" to fit, you need that certain personality, otherwise the double "A"s and pronunciation take over to end the ordeal appearing borderline "kre8tiv."
Francesca  5/14/2011
I would like to add that "Aaron" is not a very professional name for business, not educated in sound, and certainly more than a bit immaturely "Forever Young"... meaning that it does not grow well and finish the transition from boy to man.
Francesca  5/14/2011
Aaron (born 1995) is the son of actor Robert De Niro. He has a twin brother named Julian.
CarolinW  7/23/2012
Nice name, I didn't know it was so popular(#50). I know two people named Aaron, they're both in their late 40's, but I think it suits all ages. I like the female version Erin too, this is one of the few names that sounds good for both genders (at least in my opinion).
Oohvintage  1/12/2013
Again do I find so many unbearable comments for this name.

Aaron, pronounced "Awh-Rawn" in ancient Hebrew, was most famously attested to the brother of Moses, who became a symbol of Israel's priesthood as his descendants continued to be priests, and he was viewed as a patriarch of the priesthood.

Regardless of various translations, the true translation of Aaron can be used in a few ways but ultimately meaning the same thing. Aaron is a descriptive name, and it can translate into "Great" or "Mountain" or "Mountainous". I suppose some could even reference the name as meaning "Great Mountain", but in ancient Hebrew that would more likely connotate the name "Aaron-Aaron". The name Aaron is more common as part of a greater name, like the name "Jesse Aaron", which can translate into "God Is Great" or "God Is [a] Mountain", or "God Is Mountainous".

Along with this, Aaron is a distinctly MASCULINE name, yet despite this many retards have chosen to name their daughters this obviously masculine name by changing the letter structure or even writing it as "Erin" or other such similar names. If you want to make everyone think your daughter is a tomboy or a transvestite, by all means, express your ignorance.
Jarus  4/15/2013
Jarus, if you'd bothered to do any sort of research before just spewing such derogatory slurs as "retard", you'd know that Erin is an Anglicization of an Irish female name, and is an entirely different name from Aaron. It appears that YOU are indeed the ignorant one.

In Italy Aaron became Aronne, it's really rare, but very beautiful too!

Since there is no consensus in the etymology for this name, we adopted our own etymology (for our particular Aaron),
|Yahh-arown| meaning "YAHWEH's vessel."

Nice, respectable and decent name, but a lot overused.

This is one of my favorite names for boys. It is the name of Moses' brother in the Bible. It seems like it would work well as a middle name, too.

I love the name Aaron! It's very handsome and cute! The religious connotation is cool. :D.
― Anonymous User  5/23/2015
Not sure about other places but in the south central US we pronounce it "Air-run". (When I try to say it as suggested above with a short "a" like in apple and then "rin" like in pin, I just can't get my mouth to do it!) I personally really like the name. It's one of those that is easy to read, say, spell (despite the double "a"), and overall has a strong feel to it. I've never met an Aaron I didn't like!

This is Elvis Presley's middle name and I love the name Aaron.

Regarding Elvis, on the day he was born his father listed his name as Elvis Aaron but the person who wrote it on the form misspelled it and it was written down as Elvis Aron Presley on his birth certificate (one A). Apparently Elvis hated this spelling so much, he wanted to change it to the Biblical spelling (Aaron with 2 A's) for most of his life. Unfortunately he never did get around to it but he started using the double A spelling in his 20's. He told his father, various family members and many friends that he wanted it spelled 'Aaron' since that's how it should've been spelled in the first place. He graduated from high school in Memphis as Elvis Aaron Presley (2 A's), later registered for gun permits and credit cards with the double A spelling. In fact, when he died, his father ordered Elvis' marker with the spelling his son preferred and that is why Elvis' middle name is spelled with the double A's when you visit his grave today: ELVIS AARON PRESLEY.

Aaron is in my top three favorite boy names! It's strong, handsome, and Biblical. I pronounce it the same as Erin. Erin and Aaron are not related so everyone needs to cool their jets about that. I'm not sure why popularity of a name turns people off. It's used more often then other names for a reason. It's a good name! As a nature lover, I love how it means mountain.

The "Aa" in Aaron makes the name look so weird and awkward when it's spelled out. Also it sounds too close to the girl name Erin. Not a masculine sounding name at all because of this reason.
