She has French-Canadian, Swiss, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and German ancestry.[7] She has three brothers; Parker, Taylor, and Christopher. Weaver has stated that at a young age she chose to change the spelling of her name, Erin, to Aryn, claiming the original spelling was "ordinary and didn't suit [her]".[1] The rest of her stage name, Weaver, is her mother's maiden name.[8] She spent years learning different art forms including musical theater, painting, acting as well as music at Canyon Crest Academy in San Diego.[6] Weaver moved to New York City for college to pursue her acting career where she attended New York University's Tisch School of the Arts before dropping out.[9] She then moved back to California.[]
