A couple thousand years ago there was a "country" called Aram. It was part of Syria. The people who dwelt there were Semitic and called Aramaeans. Their language was Aramaic, which Jesus spoke. But the term Aramaean later came to denote those who were Pagan; the Christians took the title of Syrians. During the era of King Solomon and David, southern Syria was Israelite territory.
