I named my son Jaron. It's a unique name in Australia. It came to my head just like that, later I had googled it..
Everyone loves it, it's a very masculine name. We pronounce it Ja'RON' and not Ja'ren' or Aaron.
Here in Australia we have unique names but they do get copied from time to time like Hayden, Cayden, Aayen..

I named my son Jaron in 1988. He likes his name. Everyone remembers him once they figure out what his name is. I found it in a book of names. It said it was Hebrew but there was no pronunciation given so I pronounced it like Aaron but with a "J" of course. Other names I liked were already popular with my group of friends so I didn't want another of the same name. I don't know what teachers have called him other then Jason- they always think it's a misspelling. Also, he says they pronounce it Ja RON' which it seems is actually correct but to me it sounds like an ethnic interpretation which I have seen, Ja'Ron, Da'Ron actual spellings.

My name is Jaron David C. The first name has its meaning and my mother gave me my middle name after King David. Here's the fun part, my last name is German. Funny business really in the historical sense, but as I like to say, I'm a walking paradox.
I'm 32 at the time of this post. I have been pronouncing my name as Aaron but with a 'J' at the front. (A "made up name" from what the prior posts suggest) That's ok. :)
This is what I've gathered.
Your son will be called Jason, he will be called Jared, he will be called Daren, and at times Jeremy. *Spellings/pronunciations will vary.* Merely because people think it's a typo on paper, or that he didn't say it clearly enough.
When they get it right they will say it is a very unique and lovely name. I hated it early in life because people always got it wrong, but now I wouldn't trade it for anything. I was teased for my last name 100x more than for my first.
Jaron is a good name, it sticks out. A bit of a double edged sword. Hope this helps! :)

* The only famous Jarons I have found are Jaron Lanier (the father of modern VR) and one from a male duet (Evan and Jaron).*

I named my son Jaron. I love it, although it is sometimes misinterpreted and he gets Jarrod. I pronounce the name as Ja-ron like Aaron but with a J.

I've seen this name spelled as Jaren.

I wanted a musical name or a name for my son that had a lot of positive meaning. On June 11 2013 I named my son Jaron Kyan which translates to "Rejoicing King" and I could not be happier.

The name Jaron was given to 172 baby boys born in the US in 2012.

The name Jaron is a transliteration of Yaron, a Hebrew name meaning, "to sing, shout." It is not a modern American invention. [noted -ed]

The Hebrew name Jaron is pronounced yah-RON. Or if you Anglicise it, jah-RON. Emphasis on the second syllable.

If you're pronouncing it to sound like "Darren" with a J in front, then yeah you've got a made up name, buddy.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

This actually sounds kind of neat. It's nothing very extraordinary, but it's tolerable and shouldn't lead to teasing. :)

Pronounced (ja - ron) like baron.

Hebrew for to sign or to cry out.

Jaron is the English variant of the Hebrew name Yaron which means "He who sings and shouts praises."

It was a common Hebrew practice to take a word (in this case "ron" which means to sing or shout praises) and make it a name by adding a Ya or Ye to the beginning of it. When translated into English those become J's.

Can also be pronounced 'JEIR-in'.

Sharon may be a feminine name, but Jaron doesn't sound feminine at all. The name just doesn't really sound right in English usage, and there's no way this sounds anything like Yaron.

This is Hebrew for "he who praises the lord".
