The name is Aharon the next two characters mean "son of" the other four could be an abbreviation preceding his father's name.  It could be "the respected Rabbi, Rav" but the abbreviation marks are the usual ones.  Perhaps that's the way they marked in that place at that time.  
In Jewish tradition, a person's name consists of their given name, and their father's given name.
Thus, in example no. 1 in the first image, you're showing us only part of the full name.

In the second image,  the name is once again, Aharon, then you have "son of".   It's possible that the next word stands for "HaRav Shimon".  HaRav means "the rabbi".

Some of the letters in example no. 2 are in Rashi script.  Please improve the image resolution.
