Hello,

 

Does anyone know which resource explains the meanings of biblical names, like which root is associated and what is it's meaning.

The Bible sometimes gives explanation. We can also figure out many of them ourselves. But still not all, and sometimes not sure about that.

 

Blessings,
Martin

The Holman Bible Dictionary provides meanings to most names (although I notice that none is given to the first entry, "Aaron.").

Strange that it isn't there. HALOT says that Aaron is an Egyptian loanword used in theophoric names, meaning "<insert name of deity> is great".
