I have always seen Emily as "hard worker" or something like that but I just looked at BNW and it says "Rival; emulating". Fallon means leader. Which is perfect for her!

The names here have meanings and most of the names are derived from the names of God, rivers, nature, etc. But all the names would have meaning. Most of the names repeat over the centuries. But there are some exceptions, too. There is one name for girls which was not repeated in the history. The name is, "Draupadi". Because she inadvertently had to have five husbands, no parents want to give their daughter this name.

Aaron from the hebrew (Aharon) which is most likely of a unknown Egyptian orgin. Other theories claim a Hebrew derivation, and suggest meaning such as "high mountian" or exalted. in the old testament Aaron was the older brother of moses and the high priest of the israelites
