Is there some connection between *the ark* (Ha A Ro N) and 
*Aaron* (A Ha Ro N).  They are anagrams.  

I have seen no clear derivation of Aaron.

The derivation of ark I have read ARAH - *to gather *, then 
an ark is place to gather things together.  What rule makes 
a noun with an -ON ending from a weak root?  Or is this not 
a real derivation?

Any thoughts?
