I had presumed Aher to be a reification of the Hebrew for “Another”, as in the Talmudic disputations where “… another said …” such and such, usually some dodgy interpretation that no-one respectable would hold. In fact, a quick Google has indicated that, while the etymology is correct, it’s likely to be a reference to a real Jewish heretic, Elisha ben Abuyah (Web Link). If you follow this link you’ll find an interesting, though not very sound, article from a journal of Jewish-Christian relations.
