Oberon Origin and Meaning

The name Oberon is a boy's name of English origin meaning "noble, bearlike".

The Shakespearean character Oberon in A Midsummer Night's Dream is King of the Fairies, but the name, with its strong 'O' beginning, projects a far more virile image than that.

Oberon was also seen as a fairy king in old German legend, in French heroic song, a Ben Jonson masque, and several operas. And an Oberon appeared in Disney's animated film "Gargoyles."

The identically pronounced Auberon is occasionally heard in literary England.
