i've never been fond of this name. i do like it spelled aaron. the ahren spelling looks strange. it also looks like it should be pronounced ah-ren rather than air-en.[/b]

That is because AHREN is the German spelling of Aaron. It is pronounced the same though.

I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt form making sandwiches for a sick neighbor's children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my nails from helping weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheek and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived. "
