Meaning of the baby name HAROUN.

  

HAROUN (هارون).  Variant spelling of Arabic Harún (q.v.), a form of biblical Aaron (q.v.), meaning "light" or "mountaineer."

... Haroun-al-Rashid, 786-809, the hero of A Thousand and One Nights.  Even before he became caliph he had led a victorious army to Scutari and had extorted tribute from the Byzantine Empire.  Whenever the annual payment was withheld, he made a new expedition into Greek lands and forced the emperor to terms.  Haroun was extremely active and a great traveler, making the pilgrimage to Mecca nine times, and visiting distant portions of his caliphate. (The Middle Ages, Munro, 1922)
