Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
How many boys named Aaron lived at the time of the “Desert Generation”?
וְנָתַתִּ֤י שָׁלוֹם֙ בָּאָ֔רֶץ וּשְׁכַבְתֶּ֖ם וְאֵ֣ין מַחֲרִ֑יד וְהִשְׁבַּתִּ֞י חַיָּ֤ה רָעָה֙ מִן־הָאָ֔רֶץ וְחֶ֖רֶב לֹא־תַעֲבֹ֥ר בְּאַרְצְכֶֽם׃
I will grant peace in the land, and you shall lie down with nothing to be afraid of; I will give the land respite from vicious beasts, and no sword shall cross your land.
We are told that there were 80,000 young children named Aaron who attended Aaron’s funeral.
This is because Aaron would always busy himself with making peace between husbands and wives, and in doing so, he was responsible for more children coming into the world.
In gratitude, parents would name their child Aaron.
(Shevet Mussar 37)
