Dear Marilynn,

The Hebrew name Avigdor has no connection at all to the Hebrew name
Aharon. People in Europe with the Hebrew name Avigdor had Yiddish kinuim
such as Vigder, Vigdor, Wigder, and also secular names such as Victor or
Viktor in Europe. In the US they adopted the names Victor, Vigdor, or
William.

Normally, no: they are both Hebrew names, whose only connection
is that they have the same first letter. But you never can tell
what parents might do.
