The name Erin
written by ErinWebzee, January 30, 2008
My name is Erin and I really like it. It's not as common so as you might think anymore so there might be one maybe two people in the entire school that would have the same name as you child if even that many. and its unisex so its good for the parents who don't know what their expecting. Aaron is the boy spelling and Erin is the girl spelling but its easy to switch out vowels for a more unique spelling like Eryn, Airin, Eron, Airon, Aeron, Aerin, Eran etc. for the parents who want to add a unique touch to any childs name

my parents named me Erin Elizabeth and I couldn't be happier with it.

My name is Erin Elizbeth too!
I just thought I should share that.

Actually to get technical. Aaron is the feminine. Erin is the masculine. Although when looking at the name it seems it should be the other way around...which is probably why its switched now.

My husband was born and raised in Ireland and his name is Erin Michael. Alot of people think he is a girl even with Michael. But Courtney is correct on how the spelling is to be placed.

Hi There,
Perhaps in America Erin is a boy's name (and why not)but Erin is traditionally a girl's name in Ireland although I think it has been popularized more in America.

It comes from the Gaelic word for irish- eireann (pronounced the same). Ireland/nationalism has been depicted in poems, literature and political cartoons from the 19th century as a beautiful young woman called Erin.
My name too!

My name is Erin Elizabeth too! I think it's beautiful!
My name also
written by Erin, September 28, 2008
I am Erin and a female,and I love it. Aaron in NZ is pronounced quite differently from Erin. I had a great Uncle Erin though but he is the only man I have ever met with the same name. Usually a girls name here. I lived in the UK for two years and was constantly confusing people with my pronunciation and strong accent. It was a real drama having to explain my name constantly and I regularly used my middle name Marie to save the hassle.
