But there are a few problems, this is the Hebrew Aaron not the Irish Erin which is a very feminin name and i do have concerns that the two completely diffrent names (because they are both names with strong culture behind them) are basically pronounced the same it is a bit anoying in theory and since i dont like Erin for a girl it is a bit irritatingto think unless its read someone might confuse him for a girl or be unsure... but i do like it and may use it anyway aside from the confusion it could bring it is a strong name without nickname possibilities and its only slightly common. I really love Biblical names and their meanings as well." Feb. 8, 2006: Report as inappropriate
