"Name the child Aaron if you like the general sound of Erin and are having a boy. Erin is a girls name. Aaron is a boys name." Apr. 30, 2010:
"People keep complaining about girls having boys names..well in that case- boys shouldn't have girls names either." Nov. 12, 2009:
"This is a girl's name, it is NOT unisex. Its origin is from a Celtic GODDESS (which is where Ireland got its name from). According to Irish mythology and folklore, the name was given to the land by the Milesians after the goddess ýriu.
If you like the sound of it use Aaron instead. Aaron is a male name and has a different origin." Aug. 7, 2007:
