User comments for Aaron (Meaning / History Only)

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.

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 and Erin are totally unrelated. I hate it how some people pronounce them the same.

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.

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.

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."
