The Greatest Baby Name Book Ever Rev Ed

If It's a Boy

A Aaron Heb. "Exalted, on high." In the Old Testament, Aaron was the brother of Moses. The name was unusual until the 17th century, when so many Old Testament names first came into prominence. It has been fashionable, especially in the U.S., since the 1970s, and is very steadily used without being particularly fashionable. Currently well used in Scotland. U.S. Vice President Aaron Burr; baseball star Hank Aaron; composer Aaron Copland; actor Aaron Eckhart.
