Aro Name Meaning

Finnish: topographic and ornamental name from aro ‘hard, relatively infertile ground’ or ‘wet meadow’, ‘swamp’, found both as a place name and as a surname throughout Finland.

In the U.S. this is also a shortened form of names such as Kiviaro, of which the first element is kivi ‘stone’, ‘rock’. Spanish: habitational name, in some cases from Aro in Galicia, in others probably from Haro in Rioja.
