Re: TIL...

In my part of the state of Virginia "Aaron" and "Erin" sound pretty much the same due to the local accents. I have to admit that even though I don't have a particularly strong and pronounced Southern accent I have enough of one that when I say both names they sound very much alike unless I stress the "o" in Aaron and pronounce the name "Air-ON."

Most Aarons I've known during the course of my life pronounced their names like Erin.
