I always thought OΩN on Christ's halo was "ho ōn" for "the Existing One." But I read something that said it stood for  O*T*ΩN, which was news to me. Anyone?

Never heard that and also find it somewhat bizarre.

The first explanation you gave is the correct one. The three Greek letters are the name of God. Re the second, no, this is not correct. OTΩN means of the ears.

I thought "oune" stands for "He Who is".

It doesn't. O ΩN (two words) does.

"the existing one" and " he who is" are the same.

O ΩN is correct.  It refers to Exodus 3.14:  Ego eimi O On--I am THE BEING (the Existing One).
