Yep that's right. Check it. Go ahead, look at your calendar again, it's still Friday. I am so ganksta that I publish Thursday's swag on Friday, believe it. Tone setting baby, just getting it all ready for when I drop the greatest name EVAH on dis here blog. You dig?
Hold on to yo Lane Bryant's cuz here it come.
Name: Aaron (BOOM!)
Origin: Hebrew; derived from Aharon
Meaning: According to some theories, the name could be derived from various Hebrew roots meaning "high mountain", "mountain of strength" or "enlightened" or "exhalted.
I am Aaron's utter lack of surprise. No doubt that my name means "Mountain of Strength", I'm a huge freaking guy with the strength of 10 Ron Swansons. DAYUM!!
Notable Name Bearers: Obviously this list is long and distinguished. I could write for hours on the many, many important, verile, dashing and charismatic men named Aaron throughout history but I will give only the greatest.
Aaron the Illustrious (or Aaron of the nuts), an Armenian saint (by far my favorite!)
Aaron Burr (1756–1836), American politician
Aaron Eckhart, American actor
P-Nut (Aaron Charles Wills), member of band 311 (this one is for you Milena)
Hank Aaron, Baseball player and All-time home run champ, suck it Barry Bonds
Aaron Hernandez, football player, TE, New England Patriots
Aaron Rodgers, football player, QB, (I forget what suck-ass team he plays for)
Aaron Spelling, creator of "Beverly Hills 90120" and Tori Spelling
Comments: What else can be said about what is perhaps the greatest moniker of all time? The name screams; HONOR, STRENGTH, ELEMENTAL, MACHO, ROBUST, VIGOROUS, POTENT, and VIRILE. I could go on, the dictionary is full of words the encapsulate such a distinguished and noble name. To name my son after myself would bestow upon him the greatest of honors and yet, the largest of burdens. How could I expect him to live up to the legacy that I have lain out before him? To ask that of any man, let alone a child, would be asking too much. Why not ask him to move a mountain or bottle the oceans instead? Why not ask him to tame a stampeding herd of stallions or carve Mt. Rushmore with a Q-tip? I cannot do that to my son for he would surely go mad attempting to live in such a mighty shadow. No, I must do what is right and just. I must not lay a road ahead of my unborn son that would be impossible to travel, his road must go a different direction. His destiny lies along a different path and he must travel it alone with only his wits, an axe and his brawn.
