    Cute but it probably takes more flapping to keep his balance than to fly.

    Does anyone now why Lloyd is spelled with 2 Ls? It would be pronounced the same with 1 L. And what about Aaron? Why does it have 2 As? Is would be pronounced the same with 1 A.

    You could try Wikipedia. Lloyd (given name) and Aaron (given name). Depends on how curious you are…

    Found out that Lloyd is spelled with 2 Ls because it’s Welsh and the Welsh language uses lots of extra consonants. Couldn’t find any explanation about why Aaron is spelled with 2 As. I think I would be different and spell Lloyd with 1 L and Aaron with 1 A. If I had twins consisting of a boy and a girl, I’d name them Aron and Erin, pronouncing Aron as Ahron and Erin as Eren.

    Elvis’ middle name was Aron – one ‘A’.

    Lloyd is indeed Cymreag (‘Welsh’ is the English word for the language) in origin. The ‘Ll’ isn’t pronounced the same way in Cymreag as it is the modern version of the name. The original lettering system isn’t used anymore, but had a symbol representing this sound. Cymreag, Scottish Gaelic, Irish Gaelic and Cornish all have sounds that are difficult to represent with the modern alphabet, and only the first three are commonly spoken in the lands of their origin.

    The name Lloyd is Welsh. A slightly Anglicized version is Floyd.

    The double L in Welsh would represent a sound more like HL as one would pronounce the LL at the same time blowing a stream of air past the sides of the tongue.

    Thus a single L would not do.

    Aaron has a Semitic origin. It is thought to be a Hebrew borrowing from Egyptian, where it was pronounced Aharon. The Hebrews may have shortened the pronunciation to simply be a glottal stop and the vowel sound. Since spelling out names from one alphabet to another is fraught with issues of varying lettering systems and orthography, one tends to end up with an approximation. For instance, see all the English spellings for modern Middle Eastern or East Asian names.
