I had to sit here stupidly saying, "Aaron, Erin, Aaron, Erin," but I definitely pronounce both the first vowel sound and second vowel sound differently in those two names. The difference is subtle, but it's there. And one pronunciation definitely sounds like a boys' name to me and the other definitely sounds like a girls'! -- That'd be 18 years of a Seattle accent and 11 years of a NYC accent, don't know which is responsible.
Yup, short a (like in apple) and short e (elephant). With a North Jersey / Maryland accent.
