    Apparently "Sharon" means fruitful -- the only Biblical connection I know of is the Rose of Sharon, from the "Song of Songs" passages (which are quite beautiful love poetry). Here's a link to a site about the shrub, Rose of Sharon, which also gives background to the Bible and the Torah.

    First Sharon was the name of a flat coastal area in Israel.

    In the Bible God made a reference to the Rose of Sharon.

    (You find that name in Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath as ”Rosasharn”)

    Afterwards it was also used as a name, first for boys, then also for girls:

    Ariel Sharon, P.M. of Israel,

    Sharon Tate, Roman Polanski’s partner (murdered by Charles Manson)

    Sharon is also another word for khaki, the fruit (and color).

    You are welcome!
