Aragon

Aragon is a Spanish and French surname, originating as a locational name for someone who came from an autonomous community in Spain; Aragon was also the name of a medieval kingdom located on the Iberian Peninsula which corresponds to the modern day autonomous community from above. The name seems to have been derived from the Aragón river though the origin of the name is uncertain; it may be related to a Basque word meaning “valley”, though it may also be related to a root word meaning “water”.

Aragon isn’t used as an actual given name, at least not that I’ve found, but it reminds me so much of Aragorn and Eragon, and it certainly wouldn’t be the first place named to be used as a given name.

Origin: unknown

Meaning: uncertain, possibly either “valley” or “water”
