The name likely formed by parents Gladys and Vernon Presley to rhyme with his brother's middle name, Aaron. As a name element gar- is found in names like Gary and Garrett and comes from the Germanic name element ger meaning "spear." With the suffix -on as a diminutive ending and the root meaning of gar the name Garon could mean "little spear."
