The name, Aaron

I’d just like to point out that in Greek mythology (I think!), the name ‘Aaron’ means ‘bringer of light’. Light (supposedly) equals Jacob, anyone?

  1. although i found this –

    The boy’s name Aaron \a(a)-
    ron\ is pronounced AIR-an, AHR-an.
    It is of Hebrew origin, and its meaning is “mountain of strength”.

    and wikipedia says this –

    The meaning of the name “Aaron” is unclear. Possible meanings are:

    Pregnancy – In Hebrew – הריון, herayon. In Ancient Egyptian herr is to conceive and hrara is conception.[5]
    From the mountain – In Hebrew הר – har, which may refer to place of his own death.[6]
    High mountain – In Arabic هارون – haroun or harun.
    One of light [7]
    From Hebrew אַהֲרֹן (Ahărōn), possibly meaning “bearer of martyrs”,
    Related to the Ancient Egyptian aha rw (“warrior lion”, or possibly “elevated”, “exalted” or “high mountain”).
