Aaryn is a gender-neutral name of multiple origins. In Hebrew, this name has several meanings, including “high mountain,” “mountain of strength,” as well as an “illuminator.” It’s thought to derive from the biblical Hebrew name Aharon of the same meaning, which gave rise to the more common variation, Aaron. In the Book of Exodus, Aaron, the older brother of Moses, was a high priest and is seen as a peace-loving and compassionate figure. Some also believe that this name is Egyptian with the meaning of “warrior lion.” In Arabic, Harun is thought to derive from Aaron, translating to “mountain.” The alternate spelling of Aaryn offers a unique choice for parents who wish to give baby a biblical name with a twist.
