Rav Schneur Zalman Aharon:

He was born on Thursday of Parshas Matos, 19 Tam­muz 5618. He was named Schneur Zalman after the Alter Rebbe, and Aharon after his maternal grand­father. At the bris of his sons and grandsons, the Tzemach Tzedek would also give them abbreviated names (Maharil, Maharash, etc.). Him, he named Raza, following the terminology of the Zohar: "This is a hid­den mystery."
