The origin of the name Yaron dates back to 10th century BC (that is such a lie, I have no idea what time period it originated from) and from the Middle East region. It is a Hebrew name meaning "is full of joy" or "will be full of joy". Other interpretations are "God's happiness", "will provide happiness" or "will sing". Yaron is a pretty common boy's name in the Hebrew speaking country of Israel. Not common like "Zohan", but still.
I was born in Manhattan, but my parents are both Israeli born. They decided to name me based on a famous Israeli children's book called "Hasamba". The premise of the book was of an underground group of children, who secretly and with superhero bravery fought crime in the young Israel of the 1960's. Their leader's name was Yaron. Much to my parent's dismay I did not grow up much of a crime fighter (or a brave superhero for that matter).
