Origin of the name AGRON.
Etymology of the name AGRON.
Meaning of the baby name AGRON.


AGRON.  Illyrian name, said to be the same as Hebrew Ekron, meaning "eradication," "a rooting out." (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)  This was the name of a king of Illyria, the husband of Teuta.

    In Lydian mythology, the founder of the Lydian dynasty of the Heraklidae.  The name being Assyrian, he has been conjectured to have been a fugitive Assyrian prince. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).

    According to Herodotus the first Heraclid monarch of Lydia was Agron, son of Ninus, of Belus, of Alcaeus, of Hercules.  This is confusion worse confounded, for the Assyrian Ninus and Belus belong to the Ethnanites, and the mythic Alcaeus is made Hercules' grandfather.  Yet Agron is a name of much importance, for it introduces an Aryan or Japhetic element into Hittite history.  Agron is the same word as the Hebrew Ekron, denoting the city of the Philistines named after Eker or Geker, who also gave his name to Acrabbi or Gecrabbi... (The Hittites, Campbell, v.2, 1891)
